I've known for some time that I could email documents to my Kindle, but what I discovered today was that I can also highlight and make notes on the document. This has come in very handy as I've been reading through The Last MacKlenna.
I wanted a true reading experience as I read, so I emailed the manuscript in a Word document to my Kindle. If you don’t know how to do that, here are the instructions:
- Open Amazon
- Click on Your Account where it says Hello, [your name]
- From the drop down menu select “Manage Your Kindle”
- Enter your password
- On the left hand column under “Your Kindle Account” you’ll see “Personal Document Settings”
- Look for Send-to-Kindle E-mail Settings
- You’ll see your Kindle listed along with its email address
- Scroll down to “Approved Personal Document Email List
- Add you email address
- Go to your email and send the attached Word document to your Kindle
- Wait a few minutes and it will show up.
Now, as you read, tap on the word/phrase that you want to edit. Click “highlight." You can also click “notes.” Write a note to yourself. When you’re finished, click the index tap and go through all the notes and marks you've made.
What a great way to read your finished manuscript and have a place to make notes for those last minute edits.
Happy writing & running, Kathy
