Lending Library filter on Paperwhite

This post was last modified: 13 Jul 2017 11:17 AM by Jack_Hennety.
Hi All,

Bought a new Paperwhite on Prime Day and having trouble filtering available books by Kindle Owner's Lending Library.

If I go to the store and choose Lending Library from the hamburger menu at the top-right it goes directly to the All Categories view, which contains ALL store books. There's no means in there of showing ONLY those books which are available to borrow as part of KOLL.

I find it hard to believe that there's not an easy way to view all KOLL books and then choose, instead of having to search for a book and see if it's included which is what the UI implies.

This behaviour is in contrast to my old Kindle 5th Gen. On there, from the home page there's a menu option that doesn't appear on the Paperwhite: 'Kindle Owner's Lending Library', which, when selected, shows all categories but is restricted to KOLL books. This is exactly the behaviour I would expect on the Paperwhite, and I assume I must be missing something, After all, what would be the point of having a 'Lending Library' option in the Paperwhite's menu, only for that to show you every book in the store?

Please point me in the right direction somebody.
