OT: I used this feature the other day as I read Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson. Unfortunately the footnote was at the end of the book. So even though I got back to the page I was reading, whispersync decided my furthest page read was at 99%. I then had to contact Kindle customer service and have the "furthest page read" reset.
I really, really, really, really wish the end user could reset that themselves!!
