I use Goodreads to track my progress with books, and I like to update it after reading every day. With books that have page numbers this is easy enough, but where you have books without page numbers (e.g. Vyrso titles), it would be a real bonus if I could see my reading progress as a percentage like you can with the Desktop apps. Any chance of seeing this in future?

Do the reading completion circles not give you what you are looking for on the Library tab? The dates aren't always correct but the portion read seems to be correct.

Bill is right, but only on larger form factors. This isn't on the iPhone UI, for example. It is on my iPad.

The line underneath resources on the iPhone app is similar and gives a nice visual indicator of progress, but it's not really precise enough for me - I'm specifically looking for a percentage figure - Goodreads allows page number or percentage figures, and given that I can see the latter on desktop and that it uses info synced from the mobile app, I feel like it could be made available.

I'd guess the main reason to avoid it is that they don't want to clutter up the interface, but it'd be great if they could add it - assuming anyone else cares about Goodreads-style tracking, anyway.
