  2. Navigate through the menu with the controller

    Navigate through the menu using the five-way controller, which allows you to click arrows to choose books or other menu items. There are four arrows with a center button. Clicking the center button always takes you to the home screen.

Click on the prompt, and follow the instructions to either set up a new Amazon account or register the Kindle to your existing account. At this point, you can purchase books and download them directly to your Kindle.

  5. Read the books

    Click on the book you want to read from the Kindle library screen. As you read, click the side buttons to turn the page. If you have the touch screen Kindle version, swipe your finger across the screen to turn the page.
