I just bought a Kindle Paperwhite, which has decided I speak an Asian language. I It is charging now. I can't find the home icon. Does anyone know how to select the language?

stephen - To change the language on the Paperwhite:

You don't need to do the words, just count and this works for all languages.

From the Home Screen
- Menu (three lines in upper right corner)
- 2nd from the bottom Listing (Settings)
- 4th Listing (Device Options)
- 5th Listing (Language and Dictionaries)
- 1st Listing (Language)

English or whatever language you want

The Paperwhite will reboot.

Fud - How can he do that if it's in Chinese and so are all of the menus?

Bah Humbug!
