What reader should I use for the PMBoK PDF that will allow for annotations and bookmarking?
I recently joined PMI and I am pursuing the CAPM. I downloaded the include version on the PMBoK guide but I cannot find a reader that works with it that allows for annotating and bookmarking progress. Any idea what reader I can use?

I get that, but I do not believe it is universal. It appears I can download a Kindle version from Amazon that would allow for bookmarking, annotating, etc. I am not sure why the PMI version locks this, and I would rather not have to spend another ~$50.00 or so for another copy just so I can track my progress and keeps some notes.

If you want to document in it or highlight passages, you'll have to acquire a physical copy.
I agree with Stéphane, PDF is locked to prevent such actions. personally, I used a notebook to document notes and annotations.
Your best bet is to purchase the PMBOK Version 7 in hardback. This will allow you to make your own physical notes as apposed to digital note taking.
