4 ways to use Kindle Reader on PC both online as well as offline | Kindle for Linux/Windows/Chrome OS


Hey guys, recently i started using Amazon Kindle and all the large collection of e-books which come with it, i found the experience very nice of being able to read my favorite books offline too, hence thought of sharing the 4 ways which i use personally for Kindle Reader online as well as offline .

First Way ! – Google Chrome App / Kindle Cloud Reader Extension

  • Most of you users might be familiar with the Google Chrome Browser and the loads of apps available on the appstore, Kindle too has its own app on the Store which supports reading from the Cloud [online] as well as reading offline from local media/storage.
  • All the Features such as Bookmarks,highlighting,color changes,search,fontsize,etc work fabulously well and nice with the Google Chrome App
  • And to top of it Google Chrome being available for Windows/Linux/as well as Chrome OS , we can synchronise and use the Kindle Reader on Linux and Chrome OS too  as the native Kindle Reader/Client isn’t available for them.
  • Thus, the Kindle Reader Chrome extension which can be run offline too can be downloaded from here ->
