That thread looks really interesting, and I'd really like to go better spacing, hyphenation and images rendering in my books.

But I'm afraid reading all this will make me see things I don't see now and will never be able to unsee.

I like the kepub numbers, I always read at the same font size etc setting so I have a pretty good idea of now long it takes to read say 50 kepub "pages" on my device settings
( also, its roughly double the ADE value on my device settings, which is easy to remember - a 250 ADE page book is about 500 kepub pages
I think it's silly to have the page numbers on the right turned on. So turn them off. If you don't have the ePub footer turned on, you can get the page numbers by tapping to bring up the menu. So you can see how much you've read and total page numbers.

pages left in chapter , however defined & calculated, is great. it helps decide whether to stop reading at sleep time or go for "just one more" chapter.
I aim to complete a chapter, then I will turn one page more just to see how long the next one is, before bookmarking and closing.
You don't need to set a bookmark before you put your Kobo to sleep. It will wake where you left off.

I agree. If I stop in the middle of a chapter, I stop at the first paragraph on a page. So I know exactly where to continue reading.

If I stop in the middle of a chapter, I tend to turn it back a few pages so I can ensure I know where I left off next time.
