Sharing quotes, highlights and recommendations to Facebook and Twitter was already available to Kindle users.

Users receiving a recommendation from a Kindle owner can start reading a preview of the book on their mobile devices or desktop. To read preview of the book does not require the Kindle app or even an Amazon account.

The change will be released on Kindle Android app first and the update released to the Kindle reader and other devices later this year.

Recently, Amazon Inc unveiled a new Kindle Paperwhite with improved high-resolution 300 ppi display at Rs 10,999 in India. The Wi-Fi+3G version will cost Rs 13,999. The company has already started taking pre-orders for the product and will start the shipping from June 30.

The all-new Kindle Paperwhite introduces the most readable font, Bookerly. Designed from the ground up, Bookerly offers a lighter, more graceful look, much closer to traditional print than to computer displays for enhanced readability, particularly for long-form reading.

With improved character spacing and the addition of hyphenation, justification, kerning, ligatures and drop-cap support, Kindle's best-in-class typography allows you to read more easily and quickly with fewer page turns.
