    Thx to those leaving this valuable information. I have two children and needed a way to find my place. Once leaving a bookmark, “notes” is where you can go to your bookmarked page. Thx again, very helpful.

    this was making me crazy but my hubby figured it out. As for the Kindle Fire HD….a bookmark is literally inside a book (tap top of screen, notes and they are all there – can be used for multiple users). As far as websites the language is “favorite” – not a bookmark. Tap onto the page and “save to favorite”…. to find your favorties (websites) click the star on bottom right.

    I finally figured it out. Maybe the process is different for the HD version ??? If so, please feel free to delete the first comment I posted. For the HD, if you tap on the screen and then tap on “Notes” at the top of the screen, all of your bookmarks (and notes) will pop up!

    Absolutely NOTHING happens when the screen is tapped!?
    The instructions say the same but Ive tried all ways bar jumping on the flaming thing but the screen doesn’t alter.
