On page 273 of the APA Manual you have a couple of options when you don't have the normal page numbers to work with for a textual work.

  • Provide a section or heading name
  • You can use quotes around an abbreviated section heading name
  • You can provide a paragraph number, which means counting them if they are not numbered
  • You can combine the above approaches with a section or heading and a paragraph number.

Basically, what you are trying to do is make it easy for your reader to locate quoted content. The Manual specifically says not to use Kindle location numbers, but page numbers for books that include them are acceptable.
