Even though kindle automatically saves your place whenever you stop reading, you may also want to add additional bookmarks throughout your content. Bookmarks are indicated by a half-shaded square in the top right-hand corner of the page. Kindle allows you to place a bookmark on any text, and you can find the exact place you marked even if you have since changed text size. Your bookmarks, notes, and highlights are automatically saved in the My Clippings file that appears on your Kindle Home screen.
Placing a bookmark:
1. Place the cursor at the top of the page you wish to bookmark and click the select wheel….Or… select the Menu option at the bottom of the page and choose “Add Bookmark” from the menu.
The page is now bookmarked–notice that you now have a bookmark icon in the upper right corner of this page that looks as if the corner of the page has been turned over.
Removing a bookmark:
1. Place the cursor at the top of the page that contains a bookmark and click the select wheel…Or… select the Menu option at the bottom of the page and choose “Delete Bookmark” from the menu. The bookmark is now removed–notice that the bookmark icon in the upper right corner no longer appears.
Viewing your bookmarks:
1. Select Menu
2. Select “Go to Bookmark . . .” from the menu. You will be presented with a list of all your bookmarks, each of which shows a location number, then the first line on the bookmarked page.
3. Select the line corresponding to the bookmarked location reference.
Navigating Among Bookmarks
