Miss Carol says:
If you're charging it on your computer, you have to eject it but not disconnect the cord. After ejecting, the normal screen should come back on and you can read from there.

To eject, right click the Kindle in My Computer and select Eject. (Assuming you're using Windows and not a Mac.)

As GoldDove said, Eject from the "My Computer" list. If you Eject from the little icon at the bottom right of your screen, which is what you do for most devices, your Kindle won't recognize it and switch modes.

Are you using a PC? You have to go into Computer, right click on your Kindle, and choose eject from there - the eject icon in the system tray doesn't work.

On the other hand, if your charging your Kindle with a wall plug, you just read while it charges.
