Amazon has just pushed out a new update for their flagship Android, iPhone and iPad app that will allow users to share your Kindle notes and highlights to your friends and followers on Goodreads. There is also a new e-reading enhancement for Kindle books called ragged right. You can now read using left-aligned (ragged right) text instead of justified (aligned on both left and right margin). This new alignment option can be selected from the Display Settings (Aa) menu within Kindle books that support Enhanced Typesetting. On the Kindle eBook Store page, look for “Enhanced Typesetting: Enabled” in the features list.
