problem returning to last page read, my Kindle touch always opens at 100%. Can you search for the "last read page" ?

The Kindle is supposed to automatically jump you to the farthest read page in whatever book you open. I was having this same problem and I realized it was because my cover had a little flap that was actually touching the screen and "turning" pages. The KTouch isn't like an iPhone screen, it's more pressure sensitive than capacitive - I've accidentally changed pages with brushes of fabric on the screen. Either get another cover *or* always hit the "home" or "power" button when you close the cover, so it won't skip around in your current book. If you hit the "home" button though, you'll probably open your cover to find yourself many pages into some random book that the cover opened for you, since the device is still awake and registering the cover tapping the screen.

Also - yes if you tap the top middle of the screen it'll bring up the menus, tap on "Go To" in the middle of the bottom row and then select "furthest read". But, bad news, the software thinks that your furthest read is however far into the book you (or the cover) tapped. So if you go to the back page for some reason and then want to go to your actual furthest read point...that's the back page, according to the Touch. Bookmarks are a good way to mark your spot, but a little clunky to use - you have to go to "My Clippings" then find the bookmark hiding amongst all your other hilights and clippings, and then tap it, and then try to go there and then UNbookmark the page you're on...pain in the tush, I think. I just hit the power button and call it done.
