Bug Description

When reading a book, you sometimes have to go back to check something or you accidently open the book in a another window and the farthest position gets lost. It would be convenient if calibre could remember the farthest position you've read so you can easily get back and continue reading from there. Please add this feature if it is not too much work.

description: updated

Are you asking that the farthest position read be remembered across
viewer invocations? Like the currently reading position? Am not really a
fan of this since it means that if you happen to look ahead once, say to
check something, then the farthest position is forever there.

I understand that this would be difficult to implement. Is it possible to know if a person is reading or just scrolling/jumping in the book? Maybe it would be possible to go back to the last place where the person was actually reading if calibre could know that?

No, there isnt any robust way to know what the users intentions are
