To me it’s really frustrating that you can’t get your notes and highlights easily. The minimal thing they could do is put on Manage Your Kindle, you pick a book and you say, “Download my notes and highlights for this book,” and it would just download a little text file or RTF file or something and then you’d be good to go….It makes me wonder why people make notes in eBooks, because you don’t own them and you can’t get them out.
