And yes, I had a feeling someone would post saying they like this 'location' thing. I don't get it. The only use I have for location is to compute a percentage. Because I have no clue how much is 10,000 locations. So it does not give me an indication of book length.
By the way.... ignorant question... how are locations computed? Some character count?
Locations are a count of 128 characters - ie, 8 locations = 1k. Their primary value is in referring to a particular position in a book. But yes, I'm all in favour of choices.
