Gill, Kindle has a Menu button which allows you to search the entire book or go to a specific page.  Because Kindle books are formatted differently to their paper counterparts, and you can read it in various text sizes, there are no page numbers as such.  However, the book is split up into several thousand "locations" which you can go straight to or bookmark.  Much easier than I thought!  8-)

Thanks, Clive - the Kindle is sounding more attractive all the time :) .

I have to say I'm very pleased with mine.  Bear in mind that the 3G + WiFi version has a keyboard whereas the WiFi version (which is only half the price) does not.  The keyboard allows you to search for words.  3G is essential for me if I am to avoid paying eye-watering WiFi charges abroad.

I've just been alerted to some software that Kindle users might find helpful  :o: :

Thanks very much Gill.  This is a huge learning curve but one that is bound to be worthwhile.  Those are two excellent pieces of software!  My Kindle leather case tuned up this morning and it has the appearance of a book cover into which you can insert the  device on the one side and other paraphernalia such as credit cards on the other.  :dunno:  The one Baz has bought may be  better bet!
