'Percentage Read' Display Error & Lost Bookmark

Just wondering if anyone else has had an issue with their wifi Kobo displaying the wrong % of their book that they are reading.

I've had two separate issues:

1. When I am reading a book and my device goes into sleep mode, the book cover is displayed with only '1%' read (even though I am half-way through the book). The % read is correct on the 'Books I am reading' list, however.

2. I read the first 20 - 30 pages of a book, and after 'sleeping' and then switching to read another book, the Kobo lost my spot and went back to the beginning - and now says 1% read in the 'Books I am reading' list.

Anyone else experience issues with bookmarks or % read messages on their new Kobos?

Thanks!

I have had similar things, but I have found that when I actually open the books the right bookmark is there.

I have found on a Gutenberg e-book that it never seems to change from 1% on the cover or I'm reading list. Bookmark seems to work fine though. Other books % works fine. Likely something with the way different e-books are put together.

could be an issue with the current firmware I'd suggest messaging or posting this to the Kobo Dev's and CSR's that post on this forum so that they know this is happening and can make changes for future firmware updates.

will usually see things like this with sideloaded books only; haven't seen it with purchased books from kobobooks yet.

The percentage read problem is on library books.

The lost bookmark was on a book purchased on my PC at kobobooks.com and then loaded onto my Kobo.

Are you saying this shouldn't be a problem with books downloaded directly to the Kobo via WiFi?

as mentioned, this is a known problem with sideloaded books - ie, any book that is loaded onto the kobo via Adobe digital edition, or non-drm books that are manually loaded onto the kobo. It does not affect books that are synced wirelessly or that are synced via the kobo application. The problem seems to be, from what I can tell, an issue with the kobo not saving the a book mark until you exit the book. If you shut off the kobo before closing a book, or immediately after, the kobo sometimes will not have had enough time to record your place to memory. two things you can try doing is exit the book, and go back into it then turn it off, or exit the book, wait half a minute, then turn it off.

The SQL versions of the books seem to keep place with every page change which is why we usually won't see this issue here.
