Kindle and Facebook

Seems that Amazon snuck in a Kindle upgrade without my realizing it. The Kindle has always had the capability of allowing you to select text from a book you are reading and copy it to a clippings file, which you can then transfer to your computer. Now there's a new dimension.

Rather than copying the text to your clippings file, you can share it on Facebook. Amazon automatically Kindle adds the book title and, of course, a link to the book on Amazon.

It's self-promotion for Amazon to be sure, but also a very cool way for me to share the words of an author that I want to get out to my friends on Facebook. I've done it once already. If you're a friend of mine on Facebook, look for more from me.

I promise to try my best to restrain myself and not to overdo it.
