Thanks for your reply. So far as I can tell from my own use and others' replies, though, electronic versions of books do have page numbers; page numbers are certainly fixed in .pdf files. But, I'd forgotten that the MLA also recommends citing paragraph numbers for some electronic sources, which may be a useful practice in your situation.

So, the problem of quoting correctly from a Kindle version - whatever it is, i-Phone, Mac, aso - really matters! I am also sure that we will soon get scholarly books without paper version, without «pages» to quote.
