I have a Kindle Fire 2G which I bought for my children to share. They are required to read 100 pages in a book to earn 1 hour of computer time (3 hours max). But since the KF doesn't do page numbers, I am at a bit of a quandary how to calculate how much they have read. I can't use percentages because each book is different.

Why not 15 minutes of computer time for every hour of reading?

Math. Look on the product page of a book, I'll give an example here:

The Stand
File Size: 2727 KB
Print Length: 1348 pages

2727 divided by 1348 = 2.023 kb/page
for this book you would multiply 2.023 X 100 to get how many kbs in 100 pages (or move the decimal over 2 spots)
So you get approximately 203 kb for 100 pages.

If you make the kid do the math then they will be stronger in 2 subjects!!

Edited to say "Math" instead of "Division"

100 / total pages

Find the total number of pages from the product page.

In QL's example 100/1348 = .07 or 7%
