Using and quite enjoying the Kindle App on my HTC Evo, I thought it might not be a bad idea to grab it for OS X when I saw it on the new Mac App Store. I was quickly disappointed to find, however, that I could not copy text from within my books!
After a minute or two of finagling I came up with a fairly simple solution:
What you do with the text from there is up to you, but I strongly encourage you not to use it to engage in plagiarism or any sort of ‘book piracy’! Its a shame that Amazon has doubtlessly included this functionality as a protection against piracy.. especially when I use their mp3 service mainly because it’s DRM free!
