Ipod 5 and help with using Kindle app

Hello and does anyone have any advice on how to use the kindle app? I tried and it plays just fine, but can't figure out how to get it to stop or pause or anything else. I have an Ipod 5th gen. Any help would be appreciated.

Two finger tap?

If you're just using a say all gesture with Voiceover, (which is a two finger swipe down from the top of the screen), a two finger single tap should pause the speech.
