    I have the Kindle Fire.. but i'm sure this question could be answered by any Kindle owner..
    When i have a book in my "library" to be read... and i click on it.. it doesnt give me the description of the book... it just opens it up to the beginnig of the book..
    HOW can i get the "description" (you know the little paragraph that tells you what the book is about) of the books i have in my library??
    I ask this because i have recently gotten a LOT of free books and i downloaded ones that looked good... but now when i want to choose one to read, i cant remember what each book is "about"... [​IMG]
    Did that make sense?? [​IMG]
    Is there a way to get the "description" of the book?

    I think if you click the right arrow on the round thing, it will have another menu pop up that has a description.

    Theres the round thing that tells you how far in the book you are... and you can slide it back and forth...
    I see a round kinda star "tool" thingie.. at the TOP of the kindle... it leads you to different tools...
    I seea round "search" thing(looks like a spy glass).. but that just brings me to the search keyboard....
    *sigh*

    I think that I have to go to the menu, turn on my wireless and then go to "book description" which is a pain in the butt. I've only had my Kindle since August, so not sure of all the tricks and treats with of it.
