In the same vain, what is the result of flipping forward through a book to find a specific place? Does it interpret those forward flips as the page having been read? (I do remember reading that it disregards inadvertant page flips (or something like that). Is this scenario handled the same way?
In a very casual way, I think:

- The rate is book specific. I have been skimming through some large PDF files and the estimate for time left became extremely short (less than 1 min for 300 pages left), presumably because I flipped through 500-600 pages looking for specific passages. It did NOT affect estimates for other books.

- With the cover open and not in standby? I don't know.

- See my first point for quick flips.
