Do eBooks Have Page Numbers?

When you see “page numbers" in ADE (Adobe Digital Editions), or other readers, they are created by the reading software. This happens when the book is loaded for reading. Ebooks makers do not create them. In ADE, they are shown as changing to a new number every 1,000 characters. In Kindle, a new "location number" is displayed, approximately every 128KB.  While these numbers are very useful while you are proofreading your book, to indicate to your bookmaker where you need changes, as they don’t exist, they are not something that you need to worry about. They won't show up in your final book. You can see an example of those "faux" page numbers below, in Robert Ryan's "2013:  Beyond Armageddon."
