More immersive than before

I buy a lot of both fiction and non-fiction, but find eBooks better for fiction or works that do not have many diagrams. I have also been increasingly using e-books borrowed from my local public library. The Kindle Versions of the e-books work much better than the drm epub or pdf versions. The Adobe software is plain and the Overdrive platform is still evolving. On the negative side, the Kindle app for windows can be clunky on my Lenovo tablet but has consistently improved over the past few years (not sure if this is due to windows, kindle, or Lenovo changes). I originally fought with the app at times and only gave it three stars. Its now much more pleasant and I find myself more immersed in the material.

Needs a little work, but good.

This app needs a way to resize pages, and stretch pages to fit screen - it's especially glaring when using it on a Surface to read a comic book or other graphics heavy book - and the "page" is tiny and can't be resized.

Simple to use, nice way to read

It's an easy user interface that makes reading easy and enjoyable. The only inconveniences for me are the ones provided by using a computer- the glaring screen and the bulky construction. The best way to read is on a Kindle. :)

Love It Mostly

I love everything about it from the ease of reading most of my books to finding just what I need to purchase, etc. However, I don't like that it doesn't come in Windows 10. That should have been a big consideration for this app. It is most popular. Also, it should come with a how to navigate instruction. I am good for figuring things out, but everyone is not me. It would be helpful for those who are not computer savvy, or who may have learning curves or special needs. That would be most helpful. Otherwise, I am really happy with the app.

Needs work

One star is removed for the inability to delete books from "My Books." The other star is removed because there is no option for the book pages to be true to the size of the original book pages (when the book is sold both as a hard copy and digital copy), in other words, to have a consistently accurate page number. Otherwise the app is useful and user-friendly.

Windows 8 Desktop Ver.

Navigation on a desktop is easy with a touch mouse. The "snap right/left" feature allows you to keep a document open on screen while you take notes alongside in a word processor. I look forward to more features.

Way too basic

I've had Kindle apps on a variety of devices and the Windows app on my Surface is by far the worst. If it has options to change font and color schemes (inverting colors), they're too difficult to find. Turning pages is often slow, so you'll click again and suddenly you've gone too far. Amazon definitely needs to step up their game. I can't always take my Surface and Kindle with me, and the Surface can do more, so it takes precedence. Too bad Amazon made it too annoying to read on my Surface. Less time to read means I'll be buying fewer books from them.

Daughter Trilogy Bundle-By C.M. Owens

I loved this series. The story was great! I loved all of the characters in the story. These books would make awesome movies! I will definitely read more by Owens. Owens makes you feel like your in the book from start to finish-you can't put the books down.

Love it ...

It's easy to use on all my devices ... and I even let it read to me on my smartphone under "Accessibility/Talk Back" which comes with every phone I understand. I can listen when I walk and then pick up where I left off on my Kindle at night. Pretty cool.

Need to be able to organize and search library

Now I'm using Kindle books for personal and work projects, I have a lot of books and I want to be able to keep them grouped. Its hard to find the right book in a set of 100+, and its silly that you can't search the library but need to scan the covers to find the right one. Please add some basic organization and search features!
