Doing this means the book does not get counted as read by Amazon, so the author does not get paid.

Same difference keeping WiFI off and side loading on a Kindle. Amazon's scheme relies on WiFi bing on to since the page read. That's a rather poor way of doing it.

it used to be that if you jumped to last page while online, then amazon reckoned you had read the whole book and author got a full credit.
but that was abused by scammers placing skip- to-end links in the book to trigger a last page read and padding with a few hundred pages of random text at the front, just behind that jump to link, to bulk out the page count.
I had an example of that with 400+ pages of recipes inside what claims to be a game guide, then 10 pages of actual guide at the back. So Amazon changed the algorithm.

you are only talking about ~1 cent to the author per single finished KU loan though, so donate that to a worthy cause if you want to pay for your offline read
