Bookcision – A Free Tool To Download Your Kindle Book Highlights
If you are like me, you love books -- and you love reading books on Kindle. After all, how else can you tote an infinite library of books around the world with no worries about weight, damage, or loss?
I also love that you can highlight key passages in books you read and then circle back to those highlights later--either in the Kindle book itself or at https://read.amazon.com/notebook (where you can find all your book highlights and notes in one place).
But for some of us, we also want to have a separate copy of our highlights taken on Kindle books. This is especially true if you are a writer who likes to draw on quotes as you write about specific topics, etc.
I've tried in the past to find a simple download solution to get your highlights off of a Kindle book, and it always seemed kludgy or complicated. Until today.
Enter Bookcision. A free bookmark plugin that works with your browser (won Windows or MacOS) to download your notes. The name is a bit much. Bookcision? Yuk. But the tool itself is amazing.
With a couple of clicks, you have a nice .txt file of each book's highlights that you can do whatever you want with.
Here's the link to Bookcision with instructions. I think you'll love this tool as much as I do.
