Reading Kindle Documents

Kindle books also contain page numbers that correspond to the real page numbers in an
actual print book.

The Time to Read feature uses a unique algorithm to estimate the amount of time it will
take you to complete the chapter or book based on your past and current reading speed.
Your specific reading speed is stored only on your Kindle; it is not stored on Amazon

When reading, select Reading Progress from the menu, then choose the option you want to
display at the bottom of the page when you read. Options may include:
