What does a location number indicate in book from amazon? I think that the referr to the number of lines in the text of the book, location 3714 would mean that i am reading the 3714th line of text from the start of the book.

So location 3714 would be (3714 x 128) bytes from the beginning of the document (source not text).
* sits back to watch the inevitable locations vs pages rematch *

That's correct. Locations are units of 128 bytes in the file.
