Kindle for PC allows you to read your eBooks directly on your PC without you necessarily needing to own a Kindle reader. You have the same functionality as those available on Kindle reader, in particular with the Whispersync technology that saves and synchronizes the last page read, bookmarks and reading notes, the built-in dictionary with instant search for a quick and exact definition of a word without interrupting your reading or even matching page numbers with paper editions to facilitate the identification of pages to display. Without reaching the same comfortable level of reading as a Kindle reader, which uses a unique electronic ink technology, Kindle for PC offers reading options (full screen mode, choosing the background color, brightness ...) that make the user experience quite satisfactory.
Of course if you own a Kindle, the Kindle for PC will complement the service usefully in allowing you to easily organize your collections and synchronize data between your PC and your Kindle device. This is also a good alternative to archiving in the cloud offered by Amazon. Safeguarding your entire library on your PC, you can be sure to always have access to all your eBooks even if your network connection is down.
Read Kindle Books on Your Computer and get the best reading experience available on your PC. No Kindle require. You can access your Kindle books even if you don't have your Kindle with you. Amazon Kindle for PC automatically synchronizes your last page read and annotations between devices with Whispersync. It allows you to create bookmarks and view the annotations you created on your Kindle, and of course you can shop for Books in the Kindle Store.
