With that many pages/books you might want to consider using Collections as well. Directions are at

Where is the menu feature on the PW that I need to begin a collection?

@Kathleen: On the Home screen, tap on the Menu icon (top right; 3 horizontal lines) and then select Create New Collection. Then open that collection and add books to it.

If you don't use collections, someone posted this great tip recently (I don't use collections so I don't know if or how it would work with them) --

On the PW home screen, lower right corner, is 1/nn (where nn is the total number of pages). Tap on it and you get a text entry box.

You can either enter the page number to go to, the first few characters of a title (if your books are sorted by title or most recent), or the first few characters of an author's last name (if your books are sorted by author) and it will take you to the relevant page.
