Thank you.  The comments include a good summary of the peoblems with the new Kindle software update.  It removes the back button, displays fewer books per page in list view, and generally makes it slower and more cumbersome to find books in one's library.  Reading is no big difference once you figure out where controls have been moved, but the loss of a general purpose back button has me looking for alternative devices for my next book reader.

Subject: [LMB] New Kindle software update

Recently one of you posted about a new Kindle software update that did
things to the UI that the poster didn't like.

I just found this article online that talks a bit about what changed (and
shows screenshots), FYI, in case anyone else needs to know.
