Thank you 'I know my place' Tapping the bottom of the screen did give me numbered pages.

It cycles through a few options - location, time, page number, blank.

and then what? I have basic Kindle and it shows location rather than page number. How do I get the page numbers

Have you looked at PAGE 13 of the Kindle User Guide that came pre-installed on your Kindle?

Viewing locations, page numbers and progress
Because Kindle books can be read on devices with different screen sizes, locations
identify specific places in a book, just like a page number would for a printed book.
Location numbers allow you to direct a friend to exactly the same place in a Kindle book
you are reading, and are always displayed.
To view page numbers when reading books that have them, use the Menu button. The
current page and total number of pages will be displayed above the progress bar at the
bottom of the screen. Note that not all Kindle books include page numbers. On the Home
screen, a series of dots are displayed below the book title, indicating how long the book is,
with bold dots showing how far you have read. In a book with chapters, the tick marks in
the progress bar indicate the start of each chapter.

The User Guide is pretty short but reading it will help you get the most of your Basic kindle which really is a cracking machine. Have fun :)

do as CW says to see them temporarily, but on the Basic Kindle, there is no option to premanently diesplay them like there is on the Fires and the Paperwhite
