7 Kindle Secrets That'll Make Reading More Fun ...


Even if you prefer reading hardcover books so you can turn the pages with your own two hands, you have to admit that ebooks are incredibly convenient.

When you own a Kindle, you can carry an entire library around with you in your pocketbook.

If you're a proud owner of a Kindle, here are a few secrets that will make reading more fun:

1. You Can Share Segments

You Can Share Segments

You probably already know that you can select text and highlight it, so that it's easy for you to find later on.

However, did you know that you can actually share those pieces of text on Facebook and Twitter?

All you have to do is choose "share" instead of "highlight." You can even choose "search" instead in order to translate the word into any language that you'd like.

2. You Can Download Free Books

You Can Download Free Books

You can read books on your Kindle without actually paying a dime.

All you have to do is search for public domain books that are free to the public.

You can check out amazon.com to look through all of those free books.

3. Take Screenshots

Take Screenshots

The Kindle has similar functions to your phone.

If you own a Kindle Voyage or Paperwhite, all you have to do is press down on two opposite corners of the screen, and then it'll take a screenshot of what you've been looking at.

Meanwhile, if you own a Kindle Touch, you can hold down the home button while you tap the screen.

Last but not least, if you have the original Kindle, you should hold alt, shift, and G at the same time.3

4. You Can Lend Books

You Can Lend Books

If you want to share your ebooks with your friends, then you might be able to do so.

Certain books are capable of being lent out once for a two week period.2

In order to try it out, you should head to Amazon.com/mycd, select the title of the book you want to lend out, click on the ellipses, and then select "loan this title."
