How do I cite a quote from the kindle version of a book in APA?
First, in the in-text citation, use locations instead of page numbers. For example:
Franklin (2009) asserted “there is a significant difference between knowing a thing because you have worked it out from the evidence, and knowing a thing because someone told you to believe it” (loc. 1799-1816).
Then, in the references section, mentioned that this is the kindle edition of the book:
Franklin, R. 2009. Unknown Knowns: Why we fail to question our own certainty. (Kindle Edition). Oxford: Oxford University Press.
