Amazon has announced that beginning today, more than 11,000 libraries will be able to loan books for Kindle readers. And books library Kindle include all the advantages of e-reader sign, including the Whispersync, which coincides automatically any notes, digital tags, or highlights might make - and even cooler, and all your notes will be available the next time you leave this address particular.
