Quick Guide to Kindle 

Here you will find some basic guidance and links to resources on how to use the Kindle App for teaching, training, learning and development.

Having a Kindle reader is a useful way to read e-books. However, you don’t need to buy a Kindle e-reader device, as the Kindle App provides a way to read ebooks on your desktop (Windows or Mac), tablet or smartphone.

While reading, you can

  • change the color, font, text size, line spacing, and other attributes
  • mark up and annotate text passages
  • create flashcards from your study notes
  • use an X-ray feature to get more details on characters and other elements
  • get the definition of a word by highlighting it – a dictionary or Wikipedia entry pops up to describe it.

The Kindle app can handle books downloaded from Amazon as well as anything from your library via Libby.
