Right. What I had in mind, though, was things like Kindle for Mac, Kindle for PC, Kindle for iPad, Kindle for iPhone, and so on. I was thinking of cases where a Kindle app, but not a Kindle device, was being used. I'm pretty sure we can all agree that any KU book should be "read" in whatever form we believe is likely to get the author paid before that book is "returned" to Amazon from whatever device or app is being used.

Quote:
There is no need to record the start and stop time of each page. It could work by recording the start time when the user flips or scrolls the screen and then comparing it to the current time when a new page was displayed to see if it was long enough. If so then set the one bit that represents that page.
I'm very sleepy right now, but I can almost see this working -- with the provisos that you'd have to do something like key the start times for something like a specific word or letter rather than a "page" as such, to take into account the variable formatting, and the possibility of continual scrolling as opposed to paging, and assuming that the app always has access to a clock. And then you'd have to add up how many pages qualified for time spent and calculate the percentage of total pages qualifying. That seems kind of ridiculous to me, but I don't suppose it would take many bytes to record the results.

Quote:
In any case I doubt that Amazon is doing anything this complicated. More likely they just use the highest page reached, as they did before, but also apply a sanity check based on the total time the book was open for reading to make sure that the user did not skip over to many pages to get there.
Given that the only thing they're saying is "number of pages read", and given the multiple devices and so on being used (meaning that the simplest method will be most widely generalizable across all apps and devices), I still believe that it's most likely the only thing they're paying attention to is the highest page reached -- but y'all have given me good things to think about, and you may well be correct in your suspicions.

It really doesn't, except tangentially. It originally started with a comment made by a different poster who made a statement before I ever entered the discussion, and then took off when I started posting and included a reaction to that earlier post in my own entry. Sorry for the digression! But I think we've pretty well talked it out anyway, so we can return to our regularly scheduled thread.

And thanks to all who participated in both the on-topic and off-topic portions of my queries!

Sorry, my misunderstanding. I thought I was in some kind of archive.

The "tmp" folder that is part of the name of the file you imported indicates that the book was not completely downloaded to Kindle for Mac before you tried to import it.

Remove that book and download it again.

Hello JH : Done. As far as I can see the result is the same. Here is the log file.
Calibre imports the book. However it cannot be opened or converted. On conversion to ePUB the error is :
"Cannot convert...this book is locked by DRM..."

It is actually slightly better than the last time. The KFX Input plugin was able to locate three of the four files that make up that book. I can't explain why the last file was not found. I don't have a Mac and things may work differently there than I expect.

I have some questions to help me understand what is happening.

I don't see how that book could function without the missing file. Can you open and read that book using the Kindle for Mac program?

What are the names of all of the files in your "/Users/HDMW/Library/Application Support/Kindle/My Kindle Content/B073FSTKRH_EBOK" folder?

Added: I think that we should take this discussion to Apprentice Harper's GitHub since the missing file is preventing the removal of DRM from that book and discussion of the details of DRM removal is not allowed on this site.

Log file showing failure to import KFX file to Calibre - 2

For books I bought from Amazon before the file type change I removed DRM, converted to ePub and loaded into Calibre. From there I move a file to Bookeen Muse as needed.

However, keeping track of which Amazon file is which is difficult because the file names are meaningless (at least to me).

“I don't see how that book could function without the missing file. Can you open and read that book using the Kindle for Mac program?”

Yes.

Indeed, I’ve removed and trashed all the old and new Amazon files from /Users/HDMW/Library/Application Support/Kindle/My Kindle Content/ and all the books in the Kindle for Mac application are still readable. Either the files are stored somewhere else or KfM is reading these files direct from the server.

I guess I will wait until Apprentice Harper/Alf comes up with a plugin to handle this problem. Until then I’ll stop buying eBooks from Amazon.

I note Mr Howell owns four eBook readers. This is precisely the situation I wish to avoid, namely where each book requires one of four unique eReaders. I've come to the conclusion eBooks are fine for light reading. More important books are better kept in paper form. This is a pity but forced on us by marketing stupidity.
