New Kindle 2.5 update- now you can Facebook and Tweet what you are reading

Just a week after Barnes and Noble released their 1.3 update to the nook, Amazon begins the release of their update to the Kindle 2 and Kindle DX.  From a post over at Engadget, we know that the update is rolling out to a limited group of users first, and then a full update to the masses in  May.

What does the update get you?

  • Ability to organize books and documents into “collections”
  • Pan and zoom within PDFs
  • Kindle password protection
  • Two additional fonts
  • Ability to “share book passages with friends on Facebook and Twitter”

Sharing what you read on Facebook and Twitter?  I am not so sure about this one.  Isnt that what a book club is for?
