H ello from hot and steamy Jakarta. I have just finished reading my first kindle book-great, but how do you get back to the beginning without scrolling back through all 100 pages?

Hello, from cold and snowy Colorado! Go to Menu > Go to... Beginning.

This holds for e-ink Kindles (K2 and later), but I suppose Fire behaves in similar fashion:

From home page, right click on the title and choose "Go to Beginning". From within the book, press Menu, choose "Go To", then "Beginning".

On Touch there is no right-click, so I think you tap and hold the title until the menu appears.

Edit: greetings from cold(ish) but sunny Zagreb, Croatia! :o))

Sometimes I get a hiccup that I can't get all the way to the beginning from go to beginning. If that happens go to cover then next page it

I don't have an iPad, but I have an iPhone. I would think the Kindle app works the same way:

Tap in the middle of the page. Drag the slider button (at the bottom) to the left.

Or, tap middle, then tap the icon that looks like an open book at the bottom, then tap Cover or Beginning.

That's not a hiccup, it's where the publisher has decided the "beginning" is not the cover.

Is this in all books?
Have you tried a reboot? (while kindle is not plugged to charger, hold power button for 20 seconds and let it restart)

When I am in the process of reading a book my kindle will just jump the the home page. It is very annoying. What can I do about it?

These posts do not answer the question--How do you go to the beginning of a book in Kindle Cloud Reader which is on last page on PC Windows 8.1

George - move you mouse near the top of the screen and a black menu bar will appear. Click the GoTo icon (which looks like an open book) and select "Beginning".

I have this issues from time to time on my Kindle Fire. I normally just go home (out of the book) and re-open it and it's fine.
