When you read paperback and hardcover books, you employ page numbers for tracking progress and for discussing parts of the book. But Amazon’s Kindle only shows you your location within the book by default. Here’s the way to see real page numbers during a Kindle book.
When it involves Kindle software, the foremost reliable thanks to track your location during a book doesn’t involve using page numbers. this is often because when you’re reading on an e-book reader with customizable font sizes, page numbers become meaningless. Instead, Kindle breaks down the book content into small chunks and uses that to calculate how far along you’re .
“Location 718 of 4499” is great for Kindle software, but not for the human reading the book.
But don’t worry, Kindle also supports page numbers. If a Kindle book features a “Print Length” section on the Amazon page, it means you’ll be ready to see real page numbers as you progress through the book.
Once enabled, page numbers are going to be visible within the bottom-left corner of the reading screen (replacing the situation or reading progress).
In our experience, we’ve found that books transferred using Calibre (sometimes converted from the ePub format) also support real page numbers.
To get started, first, navigate to the “Your Library” section within the Kindle e-book reader (This works for all Kindle models.).
Then, tap a book to start out reading.
Here, tap within the top a part of the screen to reveal the toolbar.
From here, select the “Aa” button.
Go to the “More” tab and choose the “Reading Progress” option.
Switch to the “Page in Book” option. If this feature is blacked out, it means real page numbers won’t be available for this book on Kindle.
Now, return to the reading view. within the bottom-left corner of the screen, you’ll now see the pagination .
You can quickly cycle through all the reading progress options (Page in Book, Time Left in Chapter, Time Left in Book, Location in Book, and Note) by tapping the text within the bottom-left corner of the screen.
