You have to do something like start reading a book and then exit to the library to get the correct value. So if people have not done that it would explain a lot of the observations described in different threads here.
It appears to me that it's reliable down to 50% and then the more it gets used the more reliable the indicator gets between 25%-50%. I've yet to find it consistently reliable below 25%. But then, YMMV.
