Kindle Cloud Reader is a Web App that let’s you access and read your Kindle books on the go.

You can change the size of the font, background color, font color and the number of text columns. You can create and edit notes, highlight text for studying and save bookmarks.

The App also features Whispersync, it syncs your place in a book, notes and bookmarks across every devices you have the Kindle App on. It even has some great study features like a search function and get word definitions.

You can shop the Kindle Store for a wide range of books. The book you are currently reading is automatically made available offline as well (have to enable that feature in settings for the Web App).
