Amazon Kindle For the Web

Amazon Debuts Kindle For Web

After debuting a brand-new device, and several new mobile apps, Amazon is tackling another medium: the web. Today, Amazon announced Kindle for the Web, a way of previewing and sharing book samples within your browser. To be clear, this is not a Kindle web application, nor does it give users the ability to read the full text of books online.

Find out more about the service after the jump.

Kindle for the Web allows users to read excerpts of any book from the Kindle store and purchase those books from directly within the application. Or, you can share the previews with your friends via email, Facebook, and Twitter. Plus, the Kindle web app will be embeddable in any website or blog — meaning bloggers can embed the excerpts and collect referral fees from readers clicking through and purchasing books from the Amazon store.

Books with free samples available are designated by a green box on the right side of the page with an option to "Read first chapter FREE."
