Sharing from Kindle Reader app for iPhone to Facebook

share this

I don’t have an actual Kindle. I buy books from Amazon and read them on my iPhone with the Kindle app. I love it. I love the size, the line-length (makes for very speedy reading) and the fact that I don’t have to carry more than one device when I go awandering.

Theoretically, I should be able to highlight something in my Kindle Reader app, and send it to Facebook or Twitter. I’ve been reading Deanna Zandt’s book “Share This!” lately and have really wanted to share some of the great quotes from the book. The app goes through the motions, tells me it’s sharing, but nothing shows up on Facebook.

Have you made this work? Got any tips?

  1. I just ran into the same issue in the iPhone app.. I highlight, press Share, and a box pops up as if to enter text. I just pressed Share thinking it was an option to enter a comment. But on FB only a blank post appears – no quote itself, just ‘shared from [book title]‘ appended. So it appears you have to paste the quote you want to share? Except that copy/paste is not possible in the app! How could they screw up something simple like that? Unless I am doing something wrong..
