What is Kindle? First it was a thing, then an app for other things, and now it's a website too. The new Kindle for the Web beta will let you read Amazon's library in your browser—no thing necessary.

Well, except a computer, I suppose. But still—this is good news for people who enjoy reading, as they'll have another place to access Amazon's 700,000 title Kindle library—and first chapter previews are available for free. It's also good news for bloggers, who can now embed Kindle books and earn referral fees if visitors buy what they read. [Kindle for the Web]
