From source:

      <div id="pageBack" style="position:relative; top: -938; z-index:1; height:937; width:600" class="readerImage">
        <img src="http://lookinside2-images.amazon.com/Qffs+v35lepVAssn4vjwVU61JjTOjzPDetM3hXxYjFZinStxPbVqEn+3DFP1ensm"; width="600" name="si_pageUnder" height="937" border="0" />

That '<img' is your page.
