I can't remember title of book I was reading. How do I retreive?

You retreive (sic) by sorting your book list by most recent. It should be right up at the top of the list.

I have not finished reading the book so it doesn't show on my booklist.

Really? Any book on any of my devices stays put between reading sessions.
If you have an e-ink Kindle, you might look in the Collection it was should still be there, at the top of the list. If it wasn't in a Collection, it should be at the top of your main book list on the Home page. Do you know the author's name? Do you remember any unusual phrase or character name within the book? Do you know how to do a search?

If you have a Fire, it should be very close to the top of the carousel. If you installed some other launcher because the carousel wasn't good enough for you, why are you here asking for advise?

It is wifi with the keyboard on it. Not sure of model says kindle 3.4 if that means anything. I can't figure out what happened. I was reading and then decided to go to bed. I don't turn my kindle off. I went through all the current books I have to read and none of them are the one I was reading.somehow I must have deleted it.

Dang! I had a long post mostly typed when my browser reloaded on me!

You have the model called the KK here (so do I)
Press Home
Type in a word from the title or author's first or last name and it appears at the bottom of the screen.
Toggle right and center-press on Search My Items
When the progress wheel stops (upper left) you should be looking at a list of possibilities.
The ones with (xxx) numbers are on the device, the others are in your Archive.
At bottom left, it will say how many pages of results you generated.

ETA: If you're really stumped for a search word in the title or author, use a character's name or a location mentioned in the book. In-book search is only for whole books (not samples) that have been indexed (which only takes a few minutes) and are still on the device, but if it's still there, that should find it. If this shows "No Items" and "X Items not yet indexed" you can toggle down and click on the 'not yet" and it will show the names of those books.

See my edit above for in-book searching

If you purchased it recently, you can go to Manage Your Kindle on the website and wait a minute while your books load.

You should be able to sort by Most Recent, and it should be at the top of the list, unless you've bought more books since you last read the book.

To change your sort:

Toggle up and right
Toggle between the choices: Most Recent First; Title; Author; Collections
Center press on Most Recent First (Collections will vanish from your book list, but they're not gone)
‹ Previous 1 Next ›
