how to reset furthest page read on Kindle

I have a Kindle 3. When I download a new book on my kindle it has a 'new' flag right near the title. I have browsed through most of the books but I haven't read them. Now the 'new' flag is gone. Is there any way to get it back? I have 80+ books in this situation. Maybe deleting some files where the bookmarks are stored?

Thanks

Then how can I reset the last furthest page read? I guess this is stored in some file. Is there any way to do this?
Thanks

If you look at the "documents" folder, you'll find that there are two files associated with the book: one is the book itself, which will have a ".azw" extension; the other file has a ".mbp" extension and stores your reading position, bookmarks, annotations, and so on. Delete the ".mbp" file.

What about the Kindle Server sync file?

Our bookmarks, furthest position and annotations are also stored on the Kindle server. Will deleting the MBP file on one device result in the same effect on all devices after syncing?

I use a 3rd Generation Kindle Keyboard, a Kindle Fire and a Kindle 4 PC.

I doubt it. I was referring purely to reading locally. Whispersyc adds a new dimension to it, and I don't know the answer to that.

Hmm. Change the metadata a bit in Calibre, and then do a mobi-mobi conversion? (What you want to do is fool your Kindles into thinking it's a different book.)

Of course, this requires a visit to Apprentice Alf first, but it should work to reset the furthest page read across all devices. (Which will all need to have the new version sideloaded.)

I had a book that kept syncing to the end because I accidentally selected the last chapter from the table of contents on my KT when I was trying to page forward. I set my Kindle and my Android Kindle app back to page 1. Both would continuously try and sync to the end. I deleted the book from both and re-downloaded. It still tried to sync to the end.

I had to contact Kindle customer service via online chat and have them reset the furthest page read. I requested that this be a feature users can do themselves but I am going to guess it fell on deaf ears.

I am currently reading a large omnibus which is 7 book series in one mobi the problem is unlike other bundles I have purchased the order of the books are not correct.

The order looks like this 3,4,2,5,1,6,7

I have not figured a way to sync this book correctly on both my Kindles. I'm currently on book 4.

Convert to ePub, split it up, and convert back?

Or every time you move to a new book, do the workaround I suggested above to change it enough in Calibre to then generate it as a new book.

I've occasionally had to do this because my wife and I share our Kindle account, and if she gets to the book first...

I've seen a myriad of schemes that all claim to reset the furthest read page (without cracking the book—converting it and/or basically making it new). I've tried them all. The only fool-proof way that works 100% of the time is:

It really should be a feature by now.

Yes. It is all too easy to have your furthest page inadvertently set near the end of the book when you're reading something containing a lot of linked footnotes.
