Kindle: Reset the furthest page read

I’ve been an ebook user for a very long time now, and bought my first dedicated ebook reader nine years ago. In 2011, it got replaced with an Amazon Kindle, and I’ve been a Kindle user ever since, using both their dedicated devices (including the larger DX size), as well as PC, Mac, and iOS apps.

One of the very useful features of the Kindle ecosystem, is that it syncs the furthest page read to a central server, allowing you to start reading on a reader, continue reading on your PC, and then moving to your smartphone later on, not losing your spot in the book at any time.

Useful as this is, when you reread books (as I do, with some books), the ability to reset this status is very useful indeed. Here’s how:

  1. Log in to your Amazon account from a web browser
  2. Once logged in, go to “Account & Lists” > “Your Content and Devices”
  3. Browse to (or, if you’re like me and have LOTS of books in your account, search for) the book
  4. Click the button with three dots next to the book, then click “Clear furthest page read”:

That should see you sorted, though I have had to do this more than once when the books have already been downloaded to multiple devices,
