Amazon's e-reader has stood the test of time and proved to be a powerful gadget. Kindle, particulalry the one that runs on flash, provides a great reading experience to its users. I have been using it for a couple of years now and I just can't imagine myself going anywhere without taking it. I have compiled an interesting selection of books on it and each time am caught in a waiting labyrinth I have recourse to my library in Kindle.
Just like any other tool, Kindle is only powerful when combined with some third party applications. I have selected for you some useful tools and services to use in order to tap into the full potential of this awesome gadget. Check out the titles I have for you below and let us know if you have anything else to add.
