Citation and Style Guides
Kindles, iPads, mobile devices, OH MY...
Wondering how to cite a book or article you found on your mobile device, well until the style manuals catch up with technology here's one solution we recommend. For online and other electronic books follow the guidelines for print books with the addition of information regarding the format. Some readers provide location information that you can use instead of page numbers.
Instead of publisher information include the DOI if available or the source of the book download.

Guessing the page number
You can also use the "search inside" feature provided by Amazon but dealing with page numbers is currently not practical with these applications.
For in-text citations add whatever location information is available such as chapter or location (if stable).
