Of course, there was the book on neuroscience that ended at 60% completed, and all the rest was footnotes. Not very interesting footnotes, either, just references.
I'm usually reading novels and I like the percentage read displayed. If I were needing to reference a specific location then "location" works fine for anyone using a Kindle.
I'm sure during the transition to internal combustion engines people whined about missing the earthy smell of horse shit, too. I don't consider the Kindle the end of the evolution. It's more like the Stanley Steamer.
