Can I print my notes and highlighted passages from Kindle for PC? And if so, how?

Asked by Bellatrix (21240points) May 19th, 2011

I don’t have an e-book reader (i.e. a Kindle) or an iPad or other tablet on which I can read e-books but I needed some books very quickly from Amazon so bought them in Kindle format and downloaded Amazon’s Kindle for PC. This allows you to highlight passages and make your own notes but I can’t find anyway to print those highlighted sections and notes.

I find it easier to work from my own typed and printed notes when I am writing, rather than having to mess around with notes on a screen. Anyone know if there is a way to print my notes and highlighted passages from the Kindle for PC or have I basically just blown time making them because they can only be viewed on the screen?

At the very least, you can hit ‘print screen’ while looking at the notes, paste it to Paint or some other program, and print that.

That’s a good idea @MyNewtBoobs. I have googled and I can’t find anyway to just print them off which seems rather ridiculous. If you can make notes, you don’t want them to only be available on your laptop/PC.

@Bellatrix If you want, you can strip the DRM and then open them in another program that will let you print the notes. But you’d have to make the notes all over again. Amazon is pretty “Grrrr, don’t use my program too much, you might actually find me useful” with it’s restrictions and DRM (and Kindle for PC is a really shit program).

I absolutely concur at this moment :-d. I should have known it was too good to be true. I am holding out for the new Samsung Galaxy Tab to be released so I can look at that. In the meantime, I will try your print screen option. Grrr indeed.

@Bellatrix Unfortunately, there are real problems with all the formats. I hate it.
