  •  I hate hate hate - Loc 23594 (2+ / 0-)

    Or minutes left in the chapter.

    Please please please give me page numbers. Page 1 till page 1 is over, page 1/2 for that little bit between, then page 2 -- and so on.  

    I know what a page is. I know how long it takes me to read a page. I know how long it will take me to finish a chapter if I know how many pages are left.

    I will never figure out what Loc 23594 is where it is, or what it means to me.

    Why is it easier to buy a gun than it is to register to vote in most states?

      which changes how many "pages" there are and where the "page breaks" are.

      I prefer pages too, but it works OK for me to use the % meter at the bottom.

      working for a world that works for everyone ...

      •  I know but there still are pages no matter how (0+ / 0-)

        many kindle screens you need to display the page.

        Kindle just got wrapped around the axle trying to make it work.

        * put a sign at the bottom of each page. there's 350 of them per book. Kindle should be able to figure out where the particular * is that you are displaying is in the line of 350 *s.

        Doesn't seem that hard for Kindle to be able to figure out which side of * your are on, how many back - how many forward equals your page.
