Want an easy way to take notes and mark important points of the text you are reading?

You want to be able to listen to the spoken text as an audio book?

In the latest version of the Kindle, Amazon has included a Text-to-Speech experimental feature that makes it virtually obsolete audio books. Any book, magazine or blog that you download from the publisher's permission can be read aloud by the Kindle. The Kindle automatically turns the pages that the text is read, so there will be no confusion if you want to return to the playback mode. While the Kindle is great for personal reading material, it is also a great device for reading the papers. You can send Word, PDF documents and pictures using Whispernet to your unique e-mail address given to you by Amazon when you buy your Kindle. Currently the documents must be in the following file formats: unprotected Microsoft Word (DOC, DOCX), PDF, HTML, TXT, RTF, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, the MOBI and PRC files. This service is free if you transfer documents from your PC to your Kindle via USB, if there is a low cost per megabyte of downloaded content.
