I have the kindle paper white & i was reading the "A Song Of Ice And Fire" series. I have all of the 5 books together. I was at the beginning of "A Storm Of Swords" & somehow i got it all messed up & have lost my place. I think i was around 34% or so but i cant remember exactly. I know i was at the beginning of the third book. How do i get back there?

There should be a table of contents. Just bring up the menu and hit the Go To.

I've had my kindle reboot in the middle of reading and it's annoying. I usually start searching phrases to find my place. I also bookmark a lot and go to the last place bookmarked and start from that point if I have to start skimming.

Use Goto to take you to 34% and start reading, if it doesn't sound familiar, back up a bit.

usually when you go to the start of a book in that series, there's a more conventional table of contents with chapter headings

i think its because this is 5 books put together so its like chapter 75 instead of chapter 1. i am charging it up now but i will try again. Thank you for the responses everyone. i dont know how i got this thing all messed up. i was backing up a few pages to read some stuff over agin and the next thing i knew i was on some other chapter that i did not recognize and now i dont know where i am

I've got the 4-book set, and it has links to the different books at the beginning of the set.. Picking on one of the links takes you to the start of that book, and the chapter links for it... Can't imagine the 5-book set being different.

Glad to hear it. Enjoy the series. I am at the same point in my reading as well. I don't have the set in one book though.

If you find yourself somewhere unexpected, pushing the Back button once or several times will often get you back to where you were.

Actually, where you are doesn't matter. Every character you like dies. That's it.
