Before buying my $69 kindle, I used to use the Kindle PC App. With the PC edition there was a library that showed the bookcovers of the books in the library. With my Kindle, if I hit the "Home" page button, it shows me both the name of the book and the author. But no pictures. I know if I open a book and scroll to the ery very beginning there will be a cover picture, but I am wondering if there is a way to have the Kindle show a picture of the cover in the "Home" page setting. Keeo in mind I have the $69 Kindle, so based on the low cost it may not have the ability, but if it does, please tell me how to set it to show the covers.

Thank you

I think the only e-ink Kindle that has that option is the Paperwhite.

The only Eink Kindle that shows covers on the Home screen is the Paperwhite, it is a new feature.

The only current model is the Paperwhite, the Touch is no longer sold.

valid point - though a lot of stores still have them in stock (saw one last week)

But you're outside the U.S.

they don't sell them in my Kindle Store either and I think a few US residents have reported buying them from stores as well

plus people in the Uk are scouring the stores for them (the Paperwhite doesn't seem to have been as popular there)
