Forgot your Kindle reader? No problem – you can still read your e-books on a nice big screen, without losing features like notes, bookmarks and highlights. Here’s how to read Kindle books on any Windows 10 web browser for PC, Mac, or desktop.

Read Kindle books in any desktop web browser

First, let’s talk about Kindle Cloud Reader. This is Amazon’s online ebook reader that gives you access to all the books you have purchased using your Amazon Kindle account.

To get started, visit the Kindle Cloud Reader website in a desktop browser on your Windows, Mac, or Linux computer. Here, log in with your Amazon account.

Immediately, you will see all e-books from your Kindle library (except documents uploaded to your Kindle account).

Now, click on an e-book to immediately open it in the browser. If you were already reading this book on another device, Kindle Cloud Reader will pick up where you left off.

So, all you have to do is use the arrow keys to change pages. You can also use the arrow buttons from the book interface.

And this is all. Once you have finished reading, close the tab and continue. The progress of the reading will be synchronized with your account. The next time you pick up the book on your Kindle, you’ll have an option to jump to the page where you left off from Kindle Cloud Reader.

Read e-books using the Kindle app for Windows and Mac

Kindle Cloud Reader is great when you’re in trouble. But if you plan to read books regularly on your computer, it’s best to download the dedicated Kindle app for Windows or Mac.

First, open the Kindle apps page and click the “Download for PC and Mac” button to download the app.
