Review your Kindle Book Highlights and Notes Online

Posted on May 27, 2009

Yesterday, Amazon released a new Website Portal for Kindle owners that enhances the capabilities of their Kindle eBook readers. The key feature is the ability to see your kindle book highlights and notes online. The site does an excellent job of managing your books and displaying your highlights and notes.

I am sure this feature was strongly influenced by the upcoming Kindle DX reader where students will need the ability to quickly view, print or copy and paste their book notes. There is no cost to using this service which is a nice benefit.

I do find it strange that Amazon has chosen to use a different website URL for this feature instead of accessing it through the "Manage my Kindle" page. Personally, I think this adds some confusion for users but hopefully they will integrate the two pages soon.

I am pleased that Amazon continues to put a strong emphasis on their Kindle products and services. I also look forward to seeing more enhancements to these services in the near future (especially the free ones).

    The only problem is that online notes and highlights apparently does not work for the DX. Strange, because it worked fine with my Kindle 2. It’s possible I am the only person this is not working for and would love to hear some confirmation from other users. I called amazon and they were not very helpful but also said it does not work for the DX.

  2. Awesome, that is precisely what I was shooting for! Your post just spared me alot of looking around

    I’ll make sure to put this in good use!

    I stumbled upon this review and found it quite helpful. The Kindle has improved over the years and Amazon is constantly trying to add new features.

    Notes and highlights made by Kindle users can now be accessed online through Amazon. Sometimes though it can be bothersome and difficult to access. A new iOS app will be released this coming November 2013 called Snippefy ( Snippefy will allow Kindle users to read and share their notes and highlights all in one place so they won’t have a hard time looking for it. They will be able to export these as well to emails, Evernote and Dropbox.

    I wanted to share it with this community and hope that all of you would find it interesting and useful.

    Thank you

    Hi Brett,

    That is strange. Unfortunately, I do not own a DX to try this out. Have you tried posting the problem on the Amazon Kindle Board?
