I look at the bottom status bar every now and then and I've yet to figure out how it works. It could just be that each Kindle book is formatted differently, or improperly, but what I often see is large gaps in between the two "dots" that indicate sections of a book, and yet within this large gap there are still chapters that don't seem to be indicated in the status bar.
Also, sometimes I notice that after I've read a section of the book, the black bar will have a lot of little dots all bunched together, as if there were 10 or more small sections each a page or two long, yet this isn't how it really was.
So what's going on here? Does the Kindle try to guess at how the book is divided, and put marks as it finds the sections, or does it only go by what the publishers have formatted, and I'm just reading some improperly formatted books?
