How do i get kindle to show page numbers instead of location on mac. To provide a better idea of the context you can cite the chapter and section. If you are using kindle for pc or mac things will be much easier. For the reference page in text citation here is an example from the apa help guide.
Tap the location number to cycle through the minutes left in the chapter the hours and minutes left in the book and the location. I know i read another book using a cm7 last week that displayed page numbers. How do i cite from a kindle e book with location numbers not page numbers.
Step 1 just open any book in your kindle library. Go to page or location enter a page or location to go to. All e books have location information but not all have page numbers.
Step 2 in the pop up window choose page and fill in number then click on go. While reading tap the center of the screen and then tap go to. Select where you want to go.
To begin kindle doesn t inherently offer page numbers on older models. Kindle 2 6 for iphone and ipad now displays real page numbers which amazon has been adding to a large number of e books available from the kindle store. For most kindles they will only see a percentage of completion that doesn t really correlate with page numbers well.
The reason for citing a page number is so the exact quote can be found in context. I m fairly certain of this because i remember seeing that this book was around 700 pages long but now it displays an absurdly large location number and frankly i prefer pages. Your final choice becomes the default.
Thank you for your question on how to cite a kindle ebook. I m running nrgz28 ics rom and noticed that the kindle app doesn t show page numbers but instead shows location numbers up 8k on the book im reading. In an electronic book one can just do a search and find the exact location faster than just looking for the page number in a traditional book so i would say it is not necessary.
I m currently reading a book on my kindle and i just noticed that it switched from displaying page numbers to displaying location.
