Things You Need to Know about Page Number on Kindle

An eBook is easier to carry but I love holding the paper book to read. So I have both ebooks and paper books of Harry Potter. However, when I read between paper books and Kindle books, I don’t know which page I should turn to.

The numbers I saw on the bottom left of the screen are not the same as the page number on the paper book. After searching online, the default number of Kindle is a location number, the one on a paper book is a page number.

To change the location number to page number, we need to change the settings on Kindle. Read this article, you will know things about how to view page numbers on Kindle. Besides, we will show you how to enable continuous scrolling features, so you scroll the page while reading an ebook.

Search the book on the Amazon, go to the selling page. Scroll down to find whether there is a print length section, select it then “Contains real page numbers based on the print edition” will show.

If yes, that means page numbers are available for that Kindle book.
