While reading, you can view pages read or the percentage of a book read on your Kindle.
The Time To Read feature uses your reading speed to calculate how much time is left before you finish your chapter or before you finish your book. Your specific reading speed is stored only on your Kindle; it is not stored on Amazon servers.
To use Time to Read:
Note: Real page numbers are not available for all Kindle books.
While reading, tap the Go To icon in the reading toolbar to jump to the Beginning or End of the book or, if available, to a specific Chapter, Page or Location.
If your book has footnotes, tap the footnote to read the complete text inline without changing the page or losing your place in the book. To see all footnotes, tap Go to Footnotes.
With Page Flip, you can skim other pages or chapters and quickly jump back and forth within a Kindle book without losing your current place.
To use Page Flip for supported titles:
While reading select manga books, press and hold the screen to bring up an on-screen slider bar. Slide the bar to the right to flip pages to the right. Slide the bar to the left to flip pages to the left.
You can change the fonts, font size, line spacing, or margins of the page display for a Kindle book.
Note: The text size of menus and other screens can't be modified. You can't change the text appearance of PDFs.
Note: You can install OpenType (OTF) or TrueType (TTF) fonts on your Kindle. Connect your Kindle to your computer with a USB cable, then copy the font files into the “fonts” folder on your Kindle.Related Help Topics
