If this is already on the list of enhancements then just ignore, but I’ve started reading an e-book on C.N and was thinking it would be a nice feature if you could have a “bookmark” button which adds a placeholder say on page x out of however many there are, where x is the page you’re on. Obviously it wouldn’t be editing the PDF itself, it would just remember the number and assign it to the user’s login and that book in their library. So next time that user login opens that particular book, they can go to the “bookmark” button and it will flip them to the page they were on.
Not a major enhancement but I thought it would be nice. Oh and if that feature already exists, please let me know- then I can feel helped and emabrrassed at the same time. ; )
Was thinking it might also be useful because sometimes people go back to an e-book and can’t remember what page they were on… and don’t have a physical bookmark (obviously!)
Thanks for the suggestion!
Looks like this feature is a bit hidden so I’ll have a think about how to make it more accessible.
The thing about making a website is there is little or no face-to-face time with users so it is hard to find out what is being done well/not-so-well. I’d love to hear any other comments you might have.

It’s already there, Simon. Top right corner- you have to be signed in and I think also the book needs to be in your library. You then return to that page when you go back to the book via your library. Certain that’s the right way-sure one of the chiefs will amend the answer if not.
Ps not certain it manages multiple bookmarks- that would be a good feature. Like kindle does.
Yeah the book needs to be in your library to do so. Do you have any suggestions which might make this feature more accessible?

Thanks Ross. Will use it if and when I need to. So far all I need to remember is that I’m on page 26 of your book. :)- Simon 18 Aug 10:15
Lol. Thanks for making a start. Just ordered yours! It’ll make a change not reading something on my kindle!
