I'm in a book club and I use the kindle, others use actual books. Many times they say "turn to page ..." How do I set the book up so its the actual pages, or go to the actual pages? Thanks

Not all e-books have page numbers. If a book does, it will mention that on the product page.

Just ask people to give tell you the first few words of the paragraph, then search for that phrase.

It also depends on which Kindle you have. For the Paperwhite (1st gen, and I assume 2nd gen is the same), tap the top of the screen, then the "Goto" button, "Page or Location." You can type in the "real" page number or the Kindle location, then press the Page or Location button to go to the top of that page.

This works well - I typically use my Kindle instead of real books during book club discussions, and most of the books we use are main-stream publications and have "real" page numbers.
