You Kindle fans may remember my original blog post on the Kindle: Stopping the Amazon Kindle for PC Application from Crashing on Windows 7
Here’s what happened since that post
What to Know about the Amazon Kindle Cloud Reader
First go to https://read.amazon.com/
If you go there with Internet Explorer (even version 9), you’ll see they don’t support it (yet)
Otherwise, here’s what you’ll experience in the application
Viewing your library – the default view
Viewing your library – the alternate list view
These buttons at the top control if you are looking at books online or offline
The first time you look at Downloaded ….
You’ll have to click Enable Offline
After you’ve installed the Cloud Reader, you can see it in your browser extensions
And then you can see the “Downloaded” list – again these are the books you can access offline
Now let’s look at the reading experience. I’ll pick Peter F. Hamilton’s “The Dreaming Void”
The cover – not sure why the nice cover I saw in the previous screen is not shown.
A page of text. You will NOT be able to select text from these pages and copy them.
Finding Text. There isn’t any visible “Find” button, but just hit CTRL-F and you’ll see an text entry box appear…
I typed in “Inigo” – the name of one of the characters – and you’ll see his name is highlighted in the text
Page Navigation. At the bottom you can move to any specific page.
