Reading Kindle Books on Windows 8 PCs
By Dave Taylor
The Question: Now that I have a Windows 8.1 hybrid tablet computer, I’d like to be able to read some Kindle ebooks on the device. How do I manage that?
A hybrid. So you’ve got one of those slick Microsoft Windows 8.1 systems that can be either a laptop or a tablet, depending on your situation, like the Surface. Neat. What I’m surprised you haven’t found is that you can grab the Kindle app right from the Windows App Store. Jump in, search for “kindle”, and it’s pretty easy from there (in fact, I’ve written about it: How to buy and download a Win8 app from the Windows Store).
I actually just bought a new book from the Kindle store via my Web browser so I’m perfectly set up for this demo, though I don’t have a hybrid, just a regular Windows 8 computer.
