When you read paperback and hardcover books, you use page numbers for tracking progress and for discussing parts of the book. But, by default, Amazon Kindle only shows you your location in the book. Let’s find out how to see it’s page numbers.
This is for the Kindle
If a Kindle book has a Print Length section on its Amazon page, it means you will be able to see real page numbers as you move through the book. Refer to below image:
Once enabled, page numbers will be visible in the bottom left-hand corner of the reading screen (replacing the Location or Reading Progress).
First, navigate to the Your Library section in the Kindle e-book reader. See below image:
Next, tap a book to start reading. See following image:
Now, tap in the top part of the screen to reveal the toolbar. Refer to below image:
Next, select the “Aa” button. See below image:
Now, tap the More tab and select the Reading Progress option. See following image:
Next, select the Page in Book option. If this option is blacked out, it means that real page numbers will not be available for this book on Kindle. Refer to below image:
Now, go back to the reading view. In the bottom left -hand corner of your screen, you will now see the page number. See below image:
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 in the bottom left-hand corner of your screen. See following image:
