I don't have a paperwhite but you can Google "Kindle paperwhite for beginners" and you will see a12 minute video for instructions. Ask again if this doesn't work for you.

Eileen, is this a new problem with a previously functioning kindle.
From your question I'm assuming you can get to your home screen. Have you tried swishing the screen right to left. That action should turn the page. Also try taping the page at vertical center, right side, this should also turn the page. If tthe screen does not responsed to a touch you might try puttng the kindle on a harger. That has solved fome problems for me.

Where are my novels

Do you use the Kindle App?
at the bottom of screen in the Kindle App library you should see
" Cloud" / "Device"
select Cloud and then book you want to send.
when you select send you should see the name of the device in the Amazon page that opens.
If your device name isn't there you will need to type it in and approve the device.

I have 3 Kindles. 2 are early models. How do I turn those both in & order a Kindle Fire Model? Do books switch automatically. Thank you, Al.

You can clear your memory reset to default in settings.
your Kindle books are all on Amazon. When you get a new one all the books are on the cloud, you select device to move them from cloud to the new device as you choose to read.
The advantage of cloud is it will always be there so you can reread if you choose. After reading on device I remove from device.

I have books on Amazon acct Ian not access

Books you purchase will be listed in your Amazon Kindle library, also known as the Cloud. If you have a touch screen Kindle, on the home page you will see the *Device* and *Cloud* options. Touch the Cloud option and it will display all the books in your Kindle library.

To download a book to your device you must be connected to wi-fi or 3G if your device has that option (Whisper synch). Once connected, all you have to do is touch the book you want to download to your device and it will automatically be downloaded. Most books take well less than a minute do download.

How do I get books off the "on device" list but keep it on the "cloud"?

Yes, What Robert Moore1 said. Long touch on the book on the home page(s) and then select *Remove from device* .

Note: Adding a book to Kindle Paperwhite doesn't remove it from your Cloud. Your Cloud is your library. Only a copy of a book is downloaded to your Kindle. If you have another device such as an Android with the Kindle App installed you can still download the same book from the Cloud because it's always there.

How do I access a book after it has been down loaded?

On the Homescreen you will see an item next to *cloud* called *device* Any downloaded books will be listed there if they are not on the homescreen. *Cloud* is your library of books on the Kindle server. If you want a book from the cloud just touch it while you have a 3G or WiFi connection and it will download and then be listed on *Device*. It will also still be listed in the cloud as your books always stay on the cloud regardless.

Just touch the book and it should open for you.

Books not showing on device

The paperwhite has Cloud(at top next to device) click the cloud to see if your books may be there. If so just tap each book and it will download to your device. If this does not work contact Kindle support. Sign in to account online. At top far right is support(click) on next page to left is a quick fix box. Tap contact us and fill in the requested info. You then have choice to send email, call on phone, video chat. I have used it often. It's free and they have all the answers.
