I want to buy a book for my Kindle that has several pages of reference material in the front. I can see the pages when I go to "Search Inside This Book," however, I cannot print the pages. It is not easy to go back and forth to these reference pages on my Kindle, that's why I wanted to print them out for easy reference. Is there a solution from anyone? Is this a Kindle flaw?
I have a kindle 3G. How do you go the the beginning of a book after you complete a book? Backspacing the whole book is not an option. I thought the 5-way controller button would do it by chapters if hitting the arrow-- back arrow. But is is not working on this one book. ???
Press the Menu button. When the Menu opens up, press "Go To" and then use the 5 way controller to go to the Cover, Table of Contents, Beginning, etc.
For another way, see my answer about removing a book from your Kindle. You go to a different menu that allows you to remove a book but also allows you to go back to the beginning of the book or to the last page you read, several other options.
Go to "Home" and find the title, moving the cursor so that the title is highlighted. Then click the right button in the 5-way controller -- don't hit the middle button, just the ridge button on the right. You'll get a menu that allows you to Add to Collection, Go to Last Page Read, Go to Beginning, etc. Scroll down to the bottom and click Remove from Device. You'll get a box asking if you're sure, click Yes, and it's history. Amazon says you can always retrieve a book from the site if you've purchased it so you can access it forever but it doesn't have to stay on your Kindle forever. This is for Kindle 3, could be different if you have an earlier one.
Do you know how to go back to the start of the book? I just answered that question for Melanie White. My answer applies to Kindle 3, may not work for earlier Kindles.
But it is a pain if you're having to go to the references often, not as easy as flipping pages in a real book. You can print from "Search Inside This Book" if you use Grab-It or some other means of capturing a page to your desktop, then printing it.
If it's "Elizabeth Street" that you want to buy, buy it, read it, it's a great book. You don't really need the references to enjoy the book.
Usually, I go back to the cover when I start a book and then go page by page but this time I just started reading at the beginning of the book, where Kindle books always open, so I didn't see the references in the earlier pages until I finished the book, got along fine without them. I was glad to find there's a glossary of Italian words in the front of the book because there were some I didn't know. I had marked them to look up later. The context they were used in gave a good idea of the meaning but I wanted to know the actual definitions of those words. I don't think I'd have looked them up while reading, though, had I known about the glossary.
Ni hao ma. No, I can't use Kindle to read a book in Chinese because I only studied Mandarin for a semester, long ago, can only amuse waiters in Chinese restaurants -- or confuse them if they speak Cantonese, as most do.
But if you can read Chinese and books in Chinese are available as Kindle books, I don't understand your question.
You're welcome, Melanie, I'm glad I could help. I am going to bookmark this page so i can look up the answers I gave the next time *I'm* stumped on these questions. I have had to solve these mysteries more than once, having forgotten between times what I'd figured out the time before.

Hi, I'm the author of Elizabeth Street. I was contacted about the difficulty of accessing the family tree and the glossary while you're reading the book on Kindle just yesterday so I posted those documents on the Elizabeth Street Facebook page. You can print them out and keep them with your Kindle. I know it's not an ideal solution, but I hope it helps! Thanks for the kind words about Elizabeth Street.
assuming you mean it's been frozen for hours or days, i think you should call Amazon customer service at their toll-free number.
to get customer service at Amazon, go to home page and find place to click HELP at bottom right of page.
that's the hardest part: finding the right buttons to push. they could make it easier but i suppose if they did that they'd get too many calls asking them what time it is or when is the 4th of July, even "Have you got Prince Albert in a can?"
after you locate and press the HELP button, you see a form, answer a couple of questions about what kind of problem you're having, and can choose whether to have customer service e-mail you or phone you.
my experience has been that if you choose "phone now" the phone will ring within a minute. next you'll have to listen to music about one minute and then you can talk to a real person.
i have only called two, perhaps three, times, but my experiences have been positive. the people i've talked to were pleasant and helped solve my problem. hope you can get your Kindle "thawed" soon.
