Looks like I started a rather lively thread.
In any case, thanks for the contributions, particularly the ones about popping up the menu to display the page numbers...
It's no big deal. I could never really get used to the Kindle DX's displaying "location 2033-2044 of 3400". I'd have to do some mental arithmetic when flipping pages to get an idea of where I was in the book. But the PPW's estimate on time left in chapter or book is a handy one.
Thanks again, folks.
