Since the APA Publication Manual does not comprehensive guidance on citing ebook sources in-text we recommend getting guidance from the next most authoritative APA source, the APA Style Blog. According to that site you should use:

• a paragraph number, if provided; alternatively, you can count paragraphs down from the beginning of the document;
• an overarching heading plus a paragraph number within that section; or
• an abbreviated heading (or the first few words of the heading) in quotation marks, in cases in which the heading is too unwieldy to cite in full.

The information is based on section 6.05 of the APA Publication Manual, pp. 171–172.
