Copy Kindle notes and bookmarks to your PC
- 17 August, 2010 06:12
If you're a Kindle owner, you've probably discovered the device's enviable ability to bookmark pages, highlight passages, and add notes (a.k.a. annotations).
What you may not know is how to do anything useful with that data. For example, students might want to include annotations in a school paper. And if you're part of a book group, your might want to share those bookmarks and notes in, say, a Word document.
Either way, it's possible--it's just a small matter of copying that stuff to your PC. Here's how.
1. Connect your Kindle to your PC.
2. Open My Computer (or just Computer if you're on Vista/Windows 7), then look for Kindle in your list of devices.
3. Double-click the Kindle icon, then open the Documents folder.
4. Look for a file called My Clippings.txt. Copy it to your desktop (or folder of choice), then open it in Word (or your word processor of choice).
You'll see that the notes are sorted by book and by date--very handy.
