Amazon Debuts "Kindle for the Web", Which Is Pretty Much What It Sounds Like

Amazon.com today introduced the beta version of “Kindle for the Web”, which enables people to read and share digital book samples in their browsers without the need to install or download anything.

The company says it aims to lure bloggers and website publishers who participate in the Amazon Associates Program to embed samples of Kindle books on their websites (here’s how). It seems like a win: these website owners will earn referral fees from Amazon when customers complete book purchases using the links on their websites.
