Editors' Review

Amazon's Kindle for PC is a free e-book reader and manager for Windows PCs. You can read e-books, manage your library and collections, and shop for new titles, just like you can with your handheld Kindle device, only in a layout optimized for Windows.

Pros

Kindle for PC: Plenty of free Windows e-book readers are available, and many work with Kindle titles, but Kindle users will appreciate Kindle for PC's cross-platform integration, account access, and genuine Explorer-style layout with menu bar, sidebar, and Help resources.

Free account: If you're not a current Kindle user, you can create a free account or log right in using your existing Amazon account.

Annotations and more: With Kindle for PC, you can back up and display your annotations and highlights, manage and import collections, sync data, and check for new titles and other updates.

Cons

Not as bookish: Most users will prefer their handheld Kindles for reading e-books, especially on the go. Of course, if you don't have a Kindle device, Kindle for PC is the way to go.

Bottom Line

Kindle for PC gives Kindle users more options and makes Kindle material available to a much wider audience. Other free readers are available, but Kindle for PC's easy integration with your Amazon account weighs heavily in its favor.
