now with 100% real page numbers!


Anyone who’s ever tried to read an ebook while a larger group reads the printed version of the same book knows the frustration of trying to keep up in a discussion, referencing oddly-numbered sections instead of pages. I was looking at the Kindle version of a book the other day and saw that it used real pages numbers. What took so long, and is this something that we can expect to see with all ebooks?

The fact that real page numbers are being touted as a feature makes me think this isn’t the case for all digital publications just yet, but it’s a step in the right direction.
