iPad,

– Android device,

– BlackBerry,

If a Kindle book is checked out again or that book is purchased from Amazon, all of a customer’s annotations and bookmarks will be preserved.

Amazon is working with OverDrive, the leading provider of digital content solutions for over 11,000 public and educational libraries in the United States, to bring a seamless library borrowing experience to Kindle customers.

"We're excited  that  millions
of Kindle  customers  will  be
able to  borrow  Kindle  books
from  their  local  libraries.
Customers tell  us  they  love Source:

a month of battery  life,  and 20 April 2011
Whispersync  technology   that
synchronizes notes, highlights
and  last  page  read  between
their Kindle and  free  Kindle
apps.   We're  doing  a little
something extra here.
Normally, making margin  notes
in  library   books is  a  big
no-no. But we're extending our
Whispersync   technology    so
that you can highlight and add
margin  notes  to Kindle books
you  check out from your local
library.  Your notes will  not
show  up  when the next patron
checks  out the book.   But if
you check out the book  again,
or  subsequently buy it,  your
notes  will  be there just  as
you   left   them,   perfectly
Whispersynced."

with Amazon  to  offer  Kindle
