Other than reading books, Amazon Kindle can also help you read blogs and digital editions of newspapers and magazines. There’s no support for reading Adobe PDF files in Kindle but you can view Word documents and pictures.

The very surprising thing is that you’ll have pay a monthly rent to Amazon for every blog that you want to read on Kindle. For instance, Scobleizer will cost $.99 per month if you read it on Kindle.

You will have to pay Amazon for reading even your Word Documents or viewing your personal pictures on Kindle. You will first have to email that text or doc file to a special email address which converts it into a Kindle compatible format and then it become available on Kindle. Total cost – $.10.
