View the page number of a book on Amazon Kindle



Kindle user viewing actual book page number

If you read paperbacks and hardcover books, use page numbers to track progress and to discuss parts of the book. But Amazon̵

7;s Kindle only shows you your location in the book by default. Here’s how to see actual page numbers in a Kindle book.

When it comes to Kindle software, the most reliable way to track your location in a book is not to use page numbers. This is because when you read on an ebook reader with customizable font sizes, page numbers become meaningless. Instead, Kindle breaks the contents of the book into small pieces and uses them to calculate how far along you are.

“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 has a ‘Print Length’ section on the Amazon page, it means that you can see actual page numbers as you scroll through the book.

Once enabled, page numbers are visible in the lower left corner of the reading screen (replaces the location or reading progress).

In our experience, we have found that books transferred with caliber (sometimes converted from the ePub format) also support real page numbers.
