Sent to you by Sean McBride via Google Reader: Amazon Upgrade - read
your books on line via TeleRead: Bring the E-Books Home by Paul Biba on
Whatever you might think of Amazon, you certainly have to admit that
they are clever. They now have something called Amazon Upgrade which
allows you to read the p-books you have bought from them on line. If
you pay the extra fee, which varies based on the book, you can:

* Start reading the book online while you wait for your physical copy
to arrive
* Add highlights, bookmarks, notes, or tags to any page or section of
* Print pages, and even copy and paste text from the book
* Read your book from any Internet-connected computer, meaning your
book is always with you

This could be quite a useful feature for those who have to lug p-books
around for one reason or another. Right now the program seems pretty
limited. Of the many books I have bought from Amazon only 3 qualify.
Here they are with the Upgrade price:

Microsoft Windows XP Inside Out $8.99
Microsoft XP Professional Administrator’s Pocket Consultant $5.99
Faster Smarter Digital Video $3.99

Thanks to the Amazon Kindle Review for the heads up.

By the way, what’s the relevance of the picture? It’s an Amazon Tree
Frog, of course.
