Like being read to? You'll dig Amazon's new Kindle feature, Whispersync for audio. Announced today at its shindig in L.A., it allows that going forward, audiobooks will sync up with your words-books, meaning you can read and listen along at the same time.

Additionally, for the first time Amazon also revealed Whispersync for games, meaning you can pick up where you left off on a game, whatever device it is you're using. This expansion of Whispersync is pretty awesome, especially if you really like following along with your audiobooks.
