After defending herself against his sexual advances, Gussie flees to escape certain vigilante justice when she meets a charming, handsome stranger, Sam Johnson, who is just returning from World War II.
Gussie and Sam’s friendship is short-lived when Mr. Combs hunts her down and drags her back to Green Ridge, driven by his craving for revenge and a grudge too deep to comprehend. Gussie fights to return to Sam and his lo...

My Paperwhite touch controls stopped working.
« on: November 29, 2017, 05:12:06 AM »
Is there anything I can do when my touch controls don't seem to be working on my Paperwhite? I'm thinking not.
I suppose if I buy another one, I can download all my books again without any cost.

First try a restart -- if the screen is not responsive, press and hold the power button for 30-40 seconds. You'll see it go off and blink a few times and eventually restart with the boy under a tree logo. That may fix it.

If it does not, then I would contact Amazon, they may offer a discount on a replacement device.

You fixed me up -- thanks Ann. I held the button and got to the Boy Under the Tree logo and it rebooted. Works fine now.
Without any swipe controls, I would never have thought there was something I could have done with only one button.
Me and a woman at work are getting ready to start a year-long reading contest to see who can take out the most books. Now I'm back in the game.

I do a restart twice a year or so even if I don't have problems. It just sort of keeps everything in order. I've got two Paperwhite readers now, I alternated them daily, and I've never had a system problem that a restart didn't solve.
