Kindle For The Web Lets Web Sites Sell Kindle Books

Amazon’s Kindle for the Web, which lets readers read books using a Web browser, is now live. The news comes a day after Google announced its entry into digital bookselling with the Google eBookstore, which includes the ability to read books through a Web browser.

Amazon launched the service in beta back in October, but today they announced new features. Kindle for the Web now lets bookstores, authors, publishers and other Web site owners sell Kindle books from their sites and earn a referral fee for sales from their site through the Amazon Associates Program.

Russ Grandinetti, VP, Kindle Content had this statement: “Kindle for the Web makes it possible for bookstores, authors, retailers, bloggers or other website owners to offer Kindle books on their websites and earn affiliate fees for doing so.”

Website owners can add Kindle books to their site by embedding a Kindle for the Web widget. The news was announced today at a Google Chrome event, as Kindle for the Web will work on Chrome OS devices.
