I noticed the new kindle paperwhite doesn't have the home button (for returning to main screen), like the kindle touch has. How will you be able to quickly return to the home screen? If anyone knows I'd appreciate knowing before I consider upgrading to the newest model.

good question. I didn't see it mentioned anywhere yet. I agree it's an important feature; I have many Kindles with many books. I'd like to see the ability to have Collections in the Archived area too; it's a pain to only be able to scan alphabetically through hundreds of book titles.

Some of the images of the Paperwhite show a 'Home' icon on the top-left corner of the screen. Watch the Quick Tour video on the product page for several views of the icon.

S.Daher - There's a Home icon on the Menu bar at the top of the screen.

Woody - There's a hands on video on The Verge that briefly shows the menu. It shows Collections on it.

You will have to wait, S. Daher, for the User Guide to come out on the Kindle Paperwhite and also for when the models actually are rolled out in October (October 1st to be exact) so you can see physically, either by going to Staples, Office Max or Office Depot, or to Best Buy, or HHGregg to see it for yourself. If you have any questions as to where the Home Button is on the new KPW, please contact the Kindle Specialist on the Customer Service page of the website or you can go and press the Orange Button the Customer Service page to talk via live chat to get your question answered.

I completely agree. The archived folder can get quite disorienting when a lot of ebooks are there. Finding what you're looking for can be a pain.
