I can swipe up to navigate to the next page in the index on my Kindle Paperwhite, or swipe down to go to the prior page. It does not usually open a book for me unless I tap. It is possible for the swipe to be mistaken for a tap. 

An alternative is to tap the page numbers displayed in the lower right. If I tap “1 of 641” I get a screen where I can enter the page number in the index, then press “Go” and it opens that page in the index. 

I especially like the Kindle Paperwhite because it is waterproof. Great for reading in the bath. 

I hope the alternative method of navigation is useful. 

Happy reading. 

Mark
