Book Samples for All!

Huzzah!

Tell me, dear readers: whaddaya think about this new-fangled eBook craze?

Me? I’m all for the digital revolution, being a geek at heart, but I’ll admit as readily as the critics that the current technology is in dire need of improvement. Amazon’s Kindle – and Barnes & Noble’s upcoming Nook – are wonderful devices, certainly, and well-worth the cash for an avid book fiend, but the common user might find the price of entry a little steep for just a┬ábunch of books.

They might be right. But the release of a Kindle application for PC (Mac version coming soon!) caught my eye for a bit of functionality everyone can enjoy, even those who prefer the leather-bound libraries of old. Interested? Click the link and read on. Seriously, do it – this is hugely useful for everyone.

One of the premier features of the Kindle – my favorite function, honestly – is the ability to download book samples. It might not seem like much, but the option to get the first chapter of every book available in the Kindle’s expansive catalog is a god-send for readers with limited time and cash.

Even better? That same functionality is available in the recently-released Kindle PC app. I’ve not tested it myself, but all reports indicate it’s a smooth experience. You’ll need to set up an account with Amazon, if you haven’t already done so, and then register it with the Kindle application. It’s quick, relatively painless, and you’ll be on your way to unlimited book samples shortly thereafter.

You don’t have to actually buy anything, of course. You could feasibly just use the program to get a sample of any book that you’re thinking of buying, making it supremely useful even for someone who prefers to do their book shopping in a concrete store.

So what are you waiting for, book lovers? Tech fans or not, Kindle for the PC can make your book buying all the easier.
