kindleapp-forpcNow you don’t have to buy a Kindle to get some of its advantages. A free “Kindle app” lets you read over 360,000 books on your Windows laptop or desktop.

There are extra features for Windows 7 users.  They can  touch the screen to choose books, or zoom in and out of text with a pinch of the fingers. In a later version of the Kindle app, Windows 7 users will be able to turn pages with a finger swipe.

Even with Windows XP or Vista, you can choose from 10 font sizes, view your notes, add bookmarks, etc. Kindle books are typically $10, though there are thousands available for free as well. To get the new Kindle app, which comes out next month, you can sign up here:

The app will also be available for Mac users at an unspecified time in the future, Amazon officials said.
