I have always wished I could copy and paste text from a Kindle book for quoting in a blog post or email. I could understand that this might not be possible from a Kindle device, but certainly it should be easy from my iPad or the Kindle cloud reader, right? Wrong!
A friend of mine wrote a great article on how to remember more of what you read on Kindle. He showed how kindle.amazon.com will display a page with all of your highlights. This gave me a great idea… simply highlight the passage of interest, allow the reader to sync, and viola… you have the highlighted text on a Web page that you can copy and paste from. This even works with Kindle devices. Nice!
