Try a hard reboot - hold the power switch in the 'on' position for 30 seconds (count them) and then wait until the Kindle reboots - that will take some minutes. Unplug it from any power source and don't touch any keys until it reboots.

How many books do you have on the Kindle? Do you have any books stuck at indexing? (you can check this by going to your home screen and doing a search for a nonsense word like zdxzd as an example. It should come back with nothing found and tell you if you have any books stuck at indexing.)

Other than that there isn't anything else you can do but maybe upgrade to a newer Kindle.

I have around 150 books on my Kindle, have not been able to check for books stuck in indexing, it keeps freezing up on me.

The only thing I can suggest at this time is to do a factory restore and see if that fixes it. Other than that the only thing you can do is contact customer service.
