Kindle for Mac: If you selected a Kindle Book, you can use the Kindle for Mac software to enjoy the title. Any notes you take, or bookmarks you make will be saved. If you ever check out the same title again, or buy it from the Kindle store, you'll find your notes safe and sound right where you left them.
Kindle Cloud Reader: Another option to read a Kindle Book is to use Kindle Cloud Reader. All you need is a compatible browser (Chrome or Safari) and an Internet connection. As long as you're online, you can read Kindle Books right from your web browser.
