Tracking Your Progress in an E-Book
Kindle devices and the Kindle app for tablets and phones give various scales to show how far you've read in the book, stated by pages, percentages, and locations. In addition, the device now "learns" how fast you are reading and will tell you how long you have to the end of the chapter or end of the book. By going into settings or by tapping on the various scale displays you can change what appears on the page you are reading and how the scale is displayed. Contrary to rumors being spread by the paranoid, while the NSA does monitor what you select for reading, and how much you have read from any selection, it does not track your reading speed.
