An irritation with Kindle
I don’t have the device itself, but the program is loaded on my computers and iPod Touch. I never paid much attention to the little location thingy because I just plowed through a book. BUT and this is huge, I finally was able to buy a Kindle textbook and I was so excited until I’m to use a rubric on page 129. No problem. I can’t figure it out, but it’s got to be able to convert to page numbers. I hit Google with my question. And the answer is:
ding, ding, ding
It can’t be done! There isn’t a way to convert. What’s more, Amazon has told multiple students that their way is superior. APA style even has a citation using Kindle locations. Well, whoopdidoo. That doesn’t do a student trying to find a specific location in a book a lick of good.
Nook on the other hand (who I have not been supporting as much as Kindle) does have page numbers. Guess who will be getting my ebook business in the future?
