How do Popular Highlights work?
Users of Kindle e-readers and applications can highlight most interesting passages of the books they are currently reading. If you highlight the text others have found interesting as well, you’ll see a note like the one on the picture.
Amazon combines the highlights of all Kindle customers and identifies the passages with the most highlights. The resulting Popular Highlights help readers to focus on passages that are meaningful to the greatest number of people.
Why are Popular Highlights a good book recommendation tool?
The biggest advantage of highlighting book passages is that readers mark their first impressions. They want to keep the thought in memory and they want to share what they identify with.
This is the most honest way to evaluate the book. Recommendation is being made while reading, with no delay.
What you discover as Popular Highlights are the honest recommendations straight from the hearts of the largest number of readers.
Where to find Popular Highlights?
Go to a special Amazon Kindle Popular Highlights page. You’ll learn what are the most highlighted books and passages of all time. You will also, and this is particularly interesting, discover the books and passages which have been recently mostly highlighted.
You can also get free RSS updates of our Tips, Fun & More section, where we will be frequently listing mostly highlighted books in Kindle Store.
