One of the nice things about the new Amazon Kindle Fire HD is the ability for readers to synchronize audiobooks and eBooks. For those who can’t decide between an eBook or an audiobook, now you can enjoy the best of both by using the new Kindle Fire HD to synchronize your Kindle eBook with a companion audiobook from Audible.com.
The following information is taken from Amazon’s product description for the new Kindle Fire HD:
Whispersync for Voice
Now you don’t have to put a good book down, even if you’re cooking, running or commuting. With Whispersync for Voice, you can seamlessly switch between listening to the Audible audiobook and reading the companion Kindle book right where you left off.
Experience Immersion Reading
With Immersion Reading, Kindle Fire HD can now synchronize Kindle text with companion Audible audiobooks with real-time highlighting to create a more immersive reading experience, as well as deepen learning and comprehension. Almost 15,000 Kindle books and 15,000 companion Audible audiobooks across a wide array of genres are available.
BLACK KNIGHTS OF THE HUDSON BOOK I: SHADOW OF THE FLAGS is one of those titles that is supported by both formats. The audiobook format for BOOK II: BOOTS AND SADDLES is currently in production and will soon join the eBook format; just in time to try out with your new Kindle Fire HD!
