Amazon Opens Up Kindle for the Web No App Required

More interesting Amazon news this morning. Amazon is announcing Kindle for the Web, which will allow you to read a sample chapter of a book in your browser, no App of any kind required. In addition to allowing users to read the sample chapter, you can then go and purchase the book. But then you knew that was the point.  Users can also share these book samples via email or social networks, and can even embed a sample chapter in a website and earn referral fees from sales.

    Sadly, when I first read of the “share” feature – I thought they were saying you would be able to share purchased e-books in some way as so many people do with true-pulp copies.

    Before anyone lets me know – I am aware that nook has some capability in that regard. However, it is so limited that it is really nothing at all to consider.
