Many of our books are available on the Kindle. Some older titles on the Kindle (not just in Automotive, but across the board) do not have page numbers—only ‘location numbers’. This is a feature of the Kindle and makes it difficult to assign page numbers to students since they do not align. However, most new titles are Kindle compatible and contain both page numbers and location numbers.
