Well, now I'll know - because Amazon is giving in to readers' wishes to add real page numbers to their ebooks.
They write, "Our customers have told us they want real page numbers that match the page numbers in print books so they can easily reference and cite passages, and read alongside others in a book club or class. Rather than add page numbers that don't correspond to print books, which is how page numbers have been added to e-books in the past, we're adding real page numbers that correspond directly to a book's print edition."
Kindle is also making some other changes. They are going to make it easier to sell an author's other works at the end of Kindle ebooks.
"We will now offer a seamless experience that lets you immediately rate the book, share a message about the book with your social network, get personalized recommendations for what to read next, and see more books by the same author."
Another good move. Now I don't have to go all the way back into the Kindle store and type in the author's name to find the next book in the series. It'll be right there at my fingertips.
Easy is always good!
