However, I do not immediately see paragraph numbering in Kindle (This is the PC version). Perhaps it is a feature of other e-readers.

I just attended a  Capella University colloquim and this was a topic
that was raises.

When referenceing and e-book since page numbers can adjust with font
size and other issues is to use the Chapter/section title and
paragraph number instead of page number.
