Amazon Kindle adds Facebook support

If you regularly read books and magazines on an Amazon Kindle, you’ll probably be interested to know that the next software update will add the option to share book passages and quotes with friends on Facebook and Twitter, directly from your Kindle. Version 2.5 will first be released to a limited group of Kindle and Kindle DX users, but by the end of May 2010 everyone should have access to the update.

Watch out with spoilers though. You wouldn’t want to upset your friends by sharing that Jacob kills Edward, or that Dumbledore has resurrected.

Here’s the complete list of updates, as announced by Amazon:

  • Collections: Organize your books and documents into one or more collections.
  • PDF Pan and Zoom: Zoom into PDFs and pan around to easily view small print and detailed tables or graphics.
  • Password Protection: Password protect your Kindle when you’re not using it.
  • More Fonts & Improved Clarity: Enjoy two new larger font sizes and sharper fonts for an even more comfortable reading experience.
  • Facebook & Twitter Posts: Share book passages with friends on Facebook and Twitter directly from your Kindle.
  • Popular Highlights: See what the Kindle community thinks are the most interesting passages in the books you’re reading.
