Kindle Cloud Reader

Kindle Cloud Reader | technologies | Scoop.it

Kindle Cloud Reader is a great tool for practitioners and learners alike, who don’t even own a Kindle.

The Kindle Cloud Reader syncs previously read pages to all devices, so users don’t need to start at the beginning every time they pick up the book on a different device.

It also...
- automagically updates itself; and
- even has an offline mode that lets users read their books when not connected to the Internet. Perfect for when users are out of wi-fi range.

Note: at the time of curating this, Kindle Cloud only works with Chrome or Safari Browsers.
