I bought the new Kindle Fire 8.9" HD for my spouse for an early Christmas gift. I have the first Kindle Fire that came out last year and I wouldn't trade it for anything. However, I can't find the answer to this question in the forum so I'm going to ask it now. Pardon if it's a duplicate. I purposely paid the higher price to get the 8.9" without the "special offers". However, instead of the "favorites" shelves below the carousel it now gives a row of "trending now", and "Customers Also Bought" recommendations depending upon what's front and center on the carousel. I don't mind that when we log into Amazon's Web pages but not on the Kindle itself. We spend enough on apps, books, magazines, etc., as it is without Amazon throwing their products down our throats and shoving it in with a hammer. Is there any way to restore the ordinary "shelves" to keep things "easy to hand" in Favorites? And it's a pain to accidentally hit that bottom row and having something load that you weren't expecting and didn't want?
Thanks for anyone's help!

You can remove the recommendations below the Carousel. Swipe down from the top to open Settings, then tap More > Applications > Amazon Home Recommendations.

To open Favorites, tap the star icon.

THANK YOU!! I still miss the "bookshelves" for Favorites there though but I have figured out how to get the Favorites visible. Happy Holidays!
