I'm in the "leave it at the end to remind me I read it" camp. I've written an app for reading image archives on PocketBook devices, and I recently got requests to allow it to be configured to automatically restart at the beginning next time the archive was opened. I originally had no idea such a feature was important to anyone. I implemented it because it was easy to do even though I thought few would use it, but I see now that this feature is much more popular than I thought. I can also say that, once you start implementing support for all these various preferences in an application, the latter stops being the 'simple' program that everyone thinks it ought to be.

Yep.. No need to keep an already read book on the ereader. And now that I've been reading mostly on my Paperwhite, I have much less room than the DX and something's gotta go...

I delete e-books from my Kindle after reading them. I'd probably bring up the cover before closing the book if I wanted to keep it on the device. I have no particular reason for that...I just enjoy looking at book covers.

Apparently I'm the only person who scrolls past all of the end-of-book stuff (indexes, glossaries, author notes, previews of upcoming books, etc). I just gotta get that "100% complete".

Of course as soon as I do that, I update the Read status in calibre using a custom column, and then delete from my reader on next sync (because Nook has no on-device delete for sideloaded content). If I have the same book on my phone, I also delete it from there when I finish it on either device.

Should one leave the book at that page, or perhaps put it back to the cover page or maybe the first actual reading page.


Not a life or death question just wondering like

I leave it as is, but put it into another category on my e-reader (usually a genre collection, as opposed to the unread collection which are unshelved).

On the Kobo eareaders, after you've turned past the last page, it marks it as read and then sets it back to the start page.
when it marks it as read, it no longer appears on you desktop screen. which is handy.

OCD-
1. Finish book.
2. Page to the end of the book (can't take the change of missing something.)
3. Go back to the cover.
4. Remove from Kindle (i.e. send to cloud.)
5. Sync to Kindle for PC.
6. Update status in Goodreads.
7. Start next book at the cover.
8. Repeat steps 1 thru 7.

Don

Must admit this didn't occur to me as an option, might be worth a consideration.
But still raises the same issue


I think I need to have some more thought on it.

Leave it at the end, then the next time I go to goodreads I update what I have finished then del it from my kindle. I have major short term memory issues names and titles are the worst. Hence I do not remove until checked of on goodreads.

I generally leave it on the last page, that way I know I've read it at least once - I've had an ereader for over 10 years and I sometimes forget with book I've read until I get 20 pages into it!

I go back to the front page, give the book a quick peck on the cheek and then gently re-wrap it in its tin foil.
