In case you’re wondering how to bookmark book pages on Amazon Fire tablets, continue reading. I’ll discuss the methods to bookmark pages on Fire HD versions in the following sections. But first, look at the reasons why you might want to bookmark pages on your books.
Reasons Behind Bookmarking Book Pages on Amazon Fire
As we all know, bookmarks make it easy to navigate through the book and find important information. These are the main reasons people like to bookmark their book pages on devices like Fire HD and Amazon Fire tablet.
Mark Where You Left: The primary purpose of a bookmark is to mark the page where you have left the book. With Amazon Fire bookmarks also, you can mark your progress in a book and pick up where you left off when you choose to read the book again.
Without bookmarking your progress, you’ll have to flip through the pages to find where you left off, which is frustrating and time-consuming at the same time.
Highlight Important Sections: If you’re reading a novel with a complex storyline, bookmarks let you keep track of important details or references. For example, if you’re reading Jane Eyre, you might use a bookmark to mark the chapters that contain important information or subplot.
Bookmarking is also helpful when you are reading multiple books on Amazon Fire for a semester. Before the exam, you only need to revise the bookmarked pages or chapters.
Use as Reference for Discussion: If you’re reading a book that you need to discuss with others, bookmarks can be useful for sharing chapters or discussing specific parts of the book. Bookmark to highlight a page that you want to share or discuss with others or to remind yourself of a point you want to bring up during a discussion.

Nope. Bookmarks are in Notes now. How awkward is that? I am reading the Bible and eventually will have hundreds of notes. I don’t want to wade through that to find a bookmark. This will be a problem with any book of study.
Thanks for nfo on where bookmarks are, notes; As though amazon would ever deign to lower themselves to explain what they’ve done. Wasted time, finally finding answer here, as usual have to phrase ques for google or you’ll be reading how to bookmark in silk all day.
Roger E. Stoller says
Combining the bookmarks with notes makes the bookmark feature a pain to use compared to the previous way of tracking and displaying bookmarks directly from the blank bookmark tab. It is common to use multiple bookmarks to move between sections of a book and the new method makes this a messy, multi-step process. Please restore the old method as an option at least.
Shaylyn Westley says
Please fix the bookmark function on your HD models. The list of previous bookmarks is no longer available, even with the latest update to OS 22.214.171.124. It is very unfortunate and can cause problems for those that need quick access to particular pages or sections, like students.
The bookmarks have been combined with the notes. To see them you need to tap the notes button–Fifth from the right, not counting the menu button-upper right corner. All notes and bookmarks are in one list. Use the menu button on the right to delete.
I too also am angry about what happened after the last update. It’s made reading almost impossible bc I have to try and remember what percentage I was through a story, and then scroll until I hopefully find my bookmark again.
Allen Braswell says
Amazon needs to fix the bookmark function in kindle fire tablets sooner rather than later. It is very frustrating to have to search through your books to find where you left off.. This function changed with the last OS update (126.96.36.199) that was pushed out. This was not an improvement change it back don’t did what’s not broken.
Zoe E Brooks says
Bookmarks NO LONGER working. SO frustrated. They stopped working with last update. I am happy to see its not just my kindle fire that’s messed up, but angry that this issue, which is a big deal with a reader, is defunct. Please fix.
As others have posted, bookmarks suddenly don’t work anymore. I can’t tap on the bookmarks to see any anymore. I can just make them and I can’t find it remove old bookmarks.
Curly Sue says
After last update in 2020, you tap the center of the page and then select the “my notebook” icon at the top of the screen. The list of bookmarked pages will appear and you can select from the list. It took me a while to figure it out. Overall I’m not loving the new interface.
Phil Alexander says
Please fix the bookmark functionality. There is no way to go to a bookmark since the last update (188.8.131.52)
Gib Warrick says
It was no help at all. This does not even begin to address the issue. One of you updates messed up the functioning of the bookmarks and you need to fix it. It’s as simple as that. For my Kindle Fire HD 8 running Fire OS 184.108.40.206 there is no way to retrieve the list of bookmarks; you can only turn one on or off. This results in needing to memorize your location if you move away from it. This is very annoying. Please restore bookmarking to its original functionality.
Linda Boster says
My bookmarks within a book have always worked perfectly. The last few days when i tap the bookmark button it either adds or removed a bookmark. There is no way to display bookmzrks, to find a specific page!! What happened??
Donald MacIntyre says
No help. I can bookmark pages, but that bookmark is useless — there is no way to find the bookmark or return to a bookmarked page. There is no list of prior bookmark.
Maribeth Gamble says
This did help but I’d like to know how to get back to the last page read after looking at a bookmarked page. I don’t want to have to guess where I was. For example, I return to a bookmarked map, then want to return to where I was. How do I do that?
Penny Hersey says
When I tap the top of the screen I don’t get the info across the top as it shows. I used to however now I have something different. The only bookmark I see is an outline of one and it says “go to”.
Thank you so much for posting this. I was so angry that I couldn’t find my last bookmark. This worked perfectly. Thanks!
Click I center of page then click on bookmark icon…it will take you to bookmark when you choose that option.
I have had the same experience. It is very frustrating. Sometimes I can’t even make a bookmark because when I tap the screen, nothing comes up.
i keep following directions but it doesn’t work the way the instructions describe.
Leon Fager says
I bookmark a page on a novel but when I go back a try to find it I have to flip through the entire ebook. Is there an easier way to find my bookmark?
