You can catch up on all the reading where you left off by just enabling the sync to furthest page read setting for Kindle books. This is possible because Amazon also creates a copy of your Kindle Library on the cloud. Here’s a quick tip for it!
How to enable Kindle settings to Sync to furthest page read?
Amazon links all your purchases and downloads you make on your Kindle to your Amazon account, rather than the device itself. This makes the process of switching to a new Kindle device seamless and all the more efficient. However, you must enable the Kindle Sync setting first. To make Kindle sync to furthest page read, do the following.
- Turn on your Kindle device.
- Connect the device to a Wi-Fi network.
- Check the Wi-Fi indicator for strength.
- Access the Reading toolbar.
- Select Menu.
- Tap Sync to…. option.
- Choose Sync and Check for Items.
- Tap Ok.
Keeping your Kindle devices fully synced at all times is recommended because you can back up your last read page and access notes or highlights regardless of the device in use.
How do I sync my Kindle reading progress?
Turn on your Kindle devices and make sure they are working on a Wi-Fi network. You can verify this by checking the indicator in the upper-right corner of the Kindle.
Next, move to the Quick Actions icon (cog).
Select the All Settings menu.
Go to your Kindle Wi-Fi Networks.
Tap on the top of the screen to access the reading toolbar.
Tap Menu (visible as 3 vertical dots) in the upper-right corner of your Kindle screen.
Scroll down to the Sync to …. option as shown in the image above.
Tap the option.
When you see the Furthest Page Read notification, tap Ok.
Note – To make this feature work, you should have both the Kindle devices registered to the same Amazon account.
Kindle won’t sync to furthest page read
This problem persists if the device is registered to a different Amazon account. I had an issue where my brother’s new Kindle was showing the syncing option greyed out. After de-registering the device for a few seconds when I tried registering it again with the correct account, the syncing option was enabled.
Hope that makes sense!
