Taking notes on a Kindle and highlighting a piece of text for future references give you a more realistic experience with e-books. And unlike paper books, these highlights are not permanent, and you can get rid of them any time you want. But did you know that you can access your reading list and highlights on the web? By logging on to Amazon’s dedicated website for Kindle owners, you can access the list of all the books that are currently on your reading lists as well as the notes and highlights that you have on your device.
All you have to do is log on to Kindle.amazon.com. As long as you have been taking notes and highlights and reading something on your Kindle, you are going to see your notes under your reading list. Kindle 1 owners should tap on Home screen choose Menu and select “Check for New Items”. Kindle 2.0 owners should just sync their device.
The possibilities are truly endless here. Amazon can literally build killer services around notes and highlights that people have chosen to share with others (not available yet). Amazon has been working on improving its gadgets in the past few months, but why not take the next step and create a truly social e-book reader. Allowing customers to reading books and share knowledge with others more easily (through social networking sites) is a great way to take the Kindle to the next level.
Your take: should Amazon integrate Twitter and Facebook into Kindle software?
