Module 5: APA Style

In addition to the tutorial listed in the homework assignment, I also keep the the Purdue Online Writing Lab (Angeli, et al., 2010) handy, when I have a question.

This past quarter at SPU, I decided to get more of my textbooks in electronic form.  That raised the question on how to cite electronic books correctly in APA style.  To explain what I mean, when I read something on Kindle (even the Kindle application for the PC), e.g. one of my favorite quotes is from Rafe Esquith.

When all is said and done, a good teacher helps the student to improve the quality of his life. With so many children growing up poor, one of my major goals is to give that child a fighting chance to end the cycle of poverty that paralyzes hopes and dreams. (Kindle Locations 1976-1978)

The question is, does “Kindle Location” count as a page number?  The debate rages at the APA Style blog here.  Check it out if you are interested.
