Read Kindle ebooks without a Kindle

By Vasudev Ram - | @vasudevram |

Yes, you read that right - you don't need a Kindle device to read Kindle ebooks. You can read them on your PC (Windows), Mac, iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry, or Android Phone. Amazon has free Kindle reader software for all those computer and mobile platforms.

Get it from here (Amazon site):

UPDATE: I downloaded and tried out the free Kindle reader app for Windows. It seems to work well (on a brief test, of course.). I like the default font and the uncluttered appearance of the screen, and the similarity to a physical book - clear black text on a white background, with enough spacing between words, and on the sides of the text.

Here is a screenshot of the Kindle Reader for Windows, showing the book "Treasure Island":

(The book looks better in the Kindle reader than in the image above.)

Excerpts from the site:

- You can read thousands of free Kindle ebooks.

- Get free book samples - read the first chapter for free before you decide to buy.
