  1. This was so helpful!! Thank you!! I will check out your blog for more tips.

  2. This is very helpful, but only seems to work for actual, bought-from-Amazon Kindle books. I beta read for several authors and generally upload these books to my Kindle Touch with a USB cable. I use the highlights and notes features all the time when beta reading. I just tried emailing my latest beta read to my Kindle (it did work!) but that document does not show up on my Highlights page. I would like to thank you for that link to my books and highlights; I never knew that existed. It will make my reviewing much easier.

    • Madelon, this is great insight. I never considered the option you are describing. Thanks for bringing that to light. If I find a solution I’ll post here and vice versa. Best of luck with your reviews.

  3. THANK YOU! I’ve been looking for a quick and easy way to export highlights and notes for YEARS!! Switching accounts now… I found a way to do that through the Family Library, but would have been losing all of my notes and highlights! So glad to find this way to save them!!
