Jesslyn of Knuckleheadnetwork alerted us to it on Twitter about it March 7, and I saw and retweeted her info on March 8 and then forgot to write about it on the blog, so here it is.
Jesslyn gives the basic steps with images, so click on that link to see her announcement of and intro to a feature we've long
Amazon Help wording doesn't quite match what you see
But, for the record, for readers here --
Essentially, at your ManageYourKindle page at Amazon (UK version here), you reset the last-page-read IN the Kindle book listing in that library by choosing, from the long, light-green 'Actions' button, to 'Clear' the furthest page set, and you're asked if you're sure. If you're sure, confirm, and then when you NEXT open the book on one of your devices, that will be the actual "furthest page read" that will be sync'd across all your devices and apps.
Preparing last-page-read before starting this process
So, what Amazon is not saying is that you should make sure you're on the page you DID last read and want recorded as 'last-read' before you start this process, so that when you next Open that book, you're on the page you want registered as last-page-read.
In their Learn more Help section, they:
1. don't (today, 3/11) show on this Help page's action area the new option
that is newly included under the Actions button
2. mis-title, in their description, the button option as "Reset..." rather than "Clear..."
They do, though, have that descriptive paragraph on it with the slight mislabeling.
It could be that they haven't checked the added section yet and that's why no general announcement's been made.
Upshot: It's about time! Very welcome feature.
