I can't get my kindle to open to a book. What do do?

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Kindle? What have you tried so far?

I tried to choose a book from my list then it shows book details, I touch the screen on the book and nothing happens. This just started.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the e-reader expert to know before I connect you?
