Reset furthest page read

Anyone noticed you can now clear the furthest page read via the amazon website for any book you please? Not sure when that was added but

I wish they'd change it though or at least add the option to sync to last page read rather than furthest. Even if doing that wasn't automatic but needed a button pressing which would overwrite furthest read, or doing it only when you exit the app/lock the phone (assuming they want to avoid updates occurring too frequently.) since not all books are read sequentailly.

Anyhow, now others on your account can read a book after you and still use device syncing obviously still can't both read at the same time unless one of you disables sync on their device (or the account)

Yeah, I saw that a while ago. It was a very welcome feature indeed.

I'll take credit for it, I complained almost daily and had them resetting my books continuously.

Yep, there was a thread about this a few months ago. A very welcome feature.

The whole concept of "furthest page read" doesn't work for any book that has endnotes.

Don't use endnotes.

It works fine if one never jumps to the endnotes. Even if one does at rare times, they can now reset the furthest page read later.

I have never jumped to endnotes in any book I've read and I read 2 history or biography eBooks per month.

Doesn't work for me; I'm a compulsive endnote-reader.

Well as I understand this gives a chance to start over with the book. But as said in another thread I would appreciate the feature "sync to current page read". I read all my technology books now on Kindle and it happens often that I jump around in the book. I would appreciate, if I could continue reading the current page read on all devices. To clear furthest page read doesn't help here I think
