“The [Fire HD] 8 will be my Kindle that travels with me. I take it to work. We’re not allowed to have them in the cab for fairly good reasons. They don’t want anything that will distract you from the job of driving.” (Skype screenshot photo)

    I’ve asked about the ability to read personal documents since the Echo has been able to read Kindle books, and have gotten the same answer. 🙂

    Interesting. I’m curious what sort of use you might put the capability if it is ever added to Alexa, if you don’t mind sharing them. Thanks for your comment!

    I’d like to have Alexa read me ebooks I’ve purchased from sites other than Amazon that I convert (if necessary) & upload to the Kindle to read.

    Merry Christmas!
