Why don't you get an eInk Android device which can run it?

Isn't Moon+ just the best? I have it on my tablet and phone, and love it.

On the KA1, in full screen mode (normal mode just wastes too much space), you don't get any hint of where you are in the book; you just read, and read, and read, without knowing if you still have 50 pages to go, or 975. You'll have to tap the screen to get an indication of percentage or 'page number'.

The page number displayed on the KPW1 helped somewhat, but the paper book is still better in this regard.
I understand your point, but...

At least with an ebook, you have some control over "wasted space". And for me to get "sense of progression" it is just a single tap, and I can get either chapter (don't need to flip through the book to find the next chapter) of full book progression (in either pages, percent, or time).

Today while reading on my Kindle a character in my rather long book referred to someone doing something with the color violet. I don't recall the details at the moment but they don't matter. Anyway I had no idea what that was about so I held my finger down on the word "violet" and selected "search" and "this book" and in a couple of seconds I was looking at all the instances of the word "violet" in the book, along with enough context to remind me what the reference means. That is an extremely useful feature.

I haven't read a paper book in a long time. Do they do that now too?

And if connected to the net or if you have the right dictionary on your reader you can get definitions for unfamiliar terms or even translate phrases in other languages. Paper can't do that either.
