Amazon Makes It Easier to Share Passages From E-Books

By Dianna Dilworth 

Amazon is making it easier to share passages from Kindle books.

Kindle already allows readers to post passages from books to their social media feeds, but a new update is letting readers highlight quotes and send them to specific people through more channels. And it is easier for those friends to read the content. Essentially a reader can share highlights and quotes while they are reading a Kindle book via Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, email, text, etc. and determine the recipient.

The reader on the receiving end can read a free book preview from various devices be it a phone, tablet or PC without having to sign in or install an app. The new feature is now live in Kindle for Android, and coming to Kindle e-readers and other devices later this year.
