It is up to your Professor to decide what is acceptable but here is a link to the APA Style Blog post about it:

Here's some help from the Noodle Tools Help Desk:

To cite an electronic version of a print book on an e-book reader (APA 7.02), choose "Book" as the citation type, then select: Electronic Media: Book on CD-ROM, downloaded e-book (e.g., Kindle e-book), or other file independent from the Web Cite either the whole book or an entire chapter, introduction, preface, etc. if you are citing part of a book, supply only real page numbers, not device-specific or variable page numbers. In the field "Description of the medium" enter the type of e-book version you are using followed by the word "version." Examples include: "Kindle DX version," "Adobe Digital Editions version," "Microsoft Reader version," "Nook eReader version," "Mobipocket version" or "Android version." You may also use this form to cite a digital book on a CD-ROM. Examples: Roach, M. (2010). Packing for Mars: The curious science of life in the void [Adobe Digital Editions version]. Retrieved from On a side note, Kindles don't provide real page numbers.
