Book Won't Open

I am having a problem with one book on my Kindle Fire.

When I open it, the book cover appears and I can see the page status bar pop up. But the book closes almost immediately - not even enough time to turn the page.

Then in my book shelf the cover image is slightly shadowed.

I have already tried holding the power button for 30 seconds.

Aaron, try removing the book from the device and re-downloading.

I tried this, but now the same thing is happening with all of my books, even those I've read and had on there for months.

Try a hard reset. Hold the power button for 20 seconds (time it and ignore all shut down questions), release the button, then wait for the Fire to turn off. Turn it on again and see if that fixed the problem.

Thanks for the suggestion, but it didn't work. I tried it several times. I've tried the process of removing the book, do the reset, then downloading the book with no results. I've tried different permutations of those steps, but the same problem is occurring.

The book will start to open, pause for less than a second on the page, then close and go back to my home screen. I can read everything in the Cloud Reader on my computer, so it is likely something within the Kindle.
