Can I read Kindle books on my laptop?

Question: I have a lot of books on my Kindle, but sometimes I'd like to read them on my laptop instead of on my Kindle. Is there a way to do that?

Answer: Yes, you can download the Kindle app from Amazon which will let you view all of your Kindle ebooks on your computer. There are apps for both Windows and Mac computers, and you'll also find apps in the Apple store and in the Google Play app store.

You'll have a choice of downloading an app for either Windows or Mac operating systems. Amazon treats it as a $0 purchase, that doesn't require any payment information.

Once downloaded, you can install it on your computer by double-clicking it and answering the installation wizard questions. After you've installed it, you'll be able to see all of your previously purchased books, and can read them directly on your laptop.
