Kindle Wish List View Available on Paperwhite?

Can anyone who has received their Paperwhite tell me if when you shop the Kindle Store do you have access to view your current Kindle Wish List and click and buy from it directly from the Paperwhite? I hate that this went away with the Kindle Fire. I have tons of books on my wish list, sort of queued up ready to buy and have to now go through several steps to get a new book. The older e-ink Kindles made this very easy with access to your Wish List right from the Kindle.

Yes, tap the Store icon, then the Menu icon, then View Wish List. I see all of my wish lists, but only Kindle items are shown.

Thank you Ann! And you can tap on BUY, purchase and have it sent from there? (same as older models)

I don't think this works. I have a paperwhite and when on the storefront page, the menu does not display a "wishlist" option. Is there something I am doing wrong?

The wish list is on the second page of the menu. Bring up the menu and swipe up to get to page 2 where the wish list is.

I don't see my wish list on the Kindle Paperwhite either. I tap the store icon or "Shop Kindle Store" from the menu list, then tap Menu again and my options are Storefront, Books, Newspapers, Magazines, Kindle Singles, Kindle Serials, NY Times Best Sellers, Blogs, and Recommended For You, but no Wish List.

ETA: Never mind, I'm fooled again by the scroll bar!

The scroll bar on the PW is not easily recognizable. It keeps fooling me too.

Finally! Thank you. And I did not even know there was a scroll bar. Amazon update so wish list is on first page! Also how to access Wish List should be in guide. We should not have to spend time on line trying to get answers to this!

You actually should swipe your fingers across the words on the menu, from bottom to top and then you will see the wishlist.

Yes I found this out after spending 30 minutes with customer service trying to scroll. Here are steps to access wish list that I wish were in guide: 1: from home screen click on shopping cart icon.2. Tap menu ( 3 vertical lines to right of search) you will get list of items . SWIPE do not scroll right on this box. Swipe from bottom to top. You will the get View Wish List. Finally! Still think that Amazon should put wish list at top of menu.

Thank you NonnaBAC! I received my Paperwhite for Christmas and could NOT find the Wish List either. Checked every linke in the User Guide...NO mention of how to find the Wish List. I thought that was pretty poor and I spent alot of time searching. I followed you simple step-by-step and voila. Thanks again.

Seriously should be top choice.

I think we kindle users should tell Amazon that it would behoove them to put Wish list first on menu. Why jump thru those hoops. At least tell us how to find wish list in guide. Someone needs to change this.

Absolutely agree with K. Bad marketing on their part. You have to jump thru hoops to find Wish List.

NonnaBAC you should be the head of "the explaining" dept. I was so frustrated trying to find my wish list until I read your most wonderful explanation. Thanks a bunch!

All very interesting. Until I read this, I did not know this was there, possibly because I almost always buy books from my computer except for when I have finished a sample and want the book. And as others have said, the scroll bar is certainly not obvious!

Amazon - put wish list at top of list on first menu page! Took me 30 minutes to find this forum and how to find my wish list. Just poor programming.

Remember not scroll but swipe up

NonnaBAC says:
I agree totally. How do we get Them to listen. Even told customer service after we spent half hour getting to wish list.
Hence my post above!
