MS Reader is an old reader app. It was quite good, as you could sort the books by different criteria, like date purchased or last read as well as title or author. So I bought a lot of books in the format. There's no way I can get them all again now, and I don't see why I should.

The Kindle is a whole different generation of reader though. I love the way you can make new shelves.

As for connecting to the pc, I suppose I just don't have a lot of faith in updates and I'm not taking chances on it. It's just that every time we got an update at work, the whole system seemed to seize up and nothing worked any more the way we were used to. And the same has been happening at home with Windows 7, and even more so with Vista when I had that.

Think not. Do.

If it has uploaded upgrades automatically, it hasn't told me it did. I don't even know how to check.

Yes, we had the same book, "44." It's the book many on this team are reading in February.

I don't understand why I shouldn't connect to my PC. If the Kindle will update automatically, how will connecting to my PC hurt it?

I have Windows 7, too. I don't know what MS Reader is. Maybe I don't have it. Or have it and don't use it. I do have Kindle for PC, but haven't used it since getting my Kindle.

It's supposed to load updates to the program automatically anyway. Have you got the same books, because some don't show pages at all, only locations? If so, I'd avoid connecting to your pc just in case it updates to a different "improved" version! The trouble I have with Microsoft ... Every time they alter Windows 7 I have to re-activate my MS Reader on the pc. Except this last time I keep getting an error message. So I can't read my secure MS Reader books. Grrrrr.

Think not. Do.

I got mine in November, and my mom got hers about a week ago. I don't know about any upgrades. Mine has always shown page numbers, if page numbers are available for that particular book. My mom got her first books over the weekend, because I had to show her how.

Has there been an upgrade one of you doesn't have installed, maybe?

My mother and I both have a Kindle Touch. She and I both read "44," the book for February. When I click the menu button on my Touch, it tells me how many pages are in the book. When she clicks the menu button on her Touch, it does not tell her how many pages there are. I'm not sure what's up with that.

Isn't it odd that a newer model would have less bells and whistles?
I hope they fix it with an update!

Do you have a Kindle Fire? Mine has no number at top at all, just the time, my name and symbols for wi-fi, volume and settings

That's in 35 according to my one. You have to look hard for the chapter headings, they sit at the top left of the screen, just a number with no embellishments. 35 starts on location 5671.

I don't have "Chapters" just Locations in the book "Hostile Witness"
Could it be because there is no table of contents?
I just get Location 5734 of 7016 - 81% at the bottom of the screen that changes as I read.

In another book I have, there is a table of contents with chapter titles, so does it just depend on the book?
