LOL! I know what you mean... I miss the characters too. My DD had me hooked on the Mortal Instruments series and I read the final two books of the series in two days. Now what??
I don't know about the Fire; but my Paperwhite has a feature you can turn on that displays the % you have read and an estimate of the time left in the book. Maybe that would help?? Glad you're enjoying it! Chris 999 days ago
I hope you love your new Kindle! I think you'll find yourself reading even more once you get it. Check out BookBub. I've gotten tons of free books through that. Our local librarian told be about it and now both DH and I use it. I take mine everywhere with me. Happy reading! Chris
