Arrow Percentage on home screen

Something that I am very fond of when it comes to my kindle is that I don't know how much time I have left in a book, however after the recent update it now shows the percentage on home screen.. Anyone heard of a fix? It seems to me that there is no option to disable it

I'm talking about the new update where it shows in the thumbnail of the book, the percentage, if I tap it, I just enter the book

What does it show in 'list mode' rather than in 'cover mode' ?
It used to show a series of dots to indicate your progress.

There is no option to disable AFAIK, but some people who have sent emails to the Kindle feedback email have gotten responses that a future update will have more options although that related to people wanting to regain the length/progress dots that the percentage replaced I don't know if turning everything off will be an option as well.
