Is there a way to find the book description on the Paperwhite?

I had the first generation Paperwhite and was able to simply touch the book and it gave me an option to get the book's description, if I turned on my wifi. I noticed that option isn't there on the second generation Paperwhite. Is it somewhere else? Does anyone out there know? I miss that small detail...

From the user's guide (which came preloaded on your PW):

To view more information about an item and access a menu of applicable options, go to the Home screen and press and hold on the item's cover (or name if using list view). Menu options vary, but may include Add to Collection, Go To..., Book Description, Search This Book, View Bookmarks, and Remove from Device.

For the Book Description to work, you have to be connected via wi-fi or 3G.
