How to Embed Kindle eBooks into your Website
You have been using images and videos to complement the text content on your website but do you know that it is also possible to embed ebook samples into your web pages?
Amazon and Google Books are home to hundreds and thousands of ebooks and they do allow other websites to embed these ebooks with a few lines of code. Amazon lets you embed few sample chapters from the book while in the case of Google Books, you can embed the entire e-book provided it is in public domain or free.
To embed a Kindle ebook on your website, all you need to know is the ASIN code of the ebook and you are good to go. This unique code can be easily found on the product page of any Amazon title.
You need to change the book’s ASIN code (in this case, B0049U4CCE) and the assoctag value (in this case, labnol-20) with your own Amazon Associates ID.

You may also experiment with the height and width parameters (in pixels) to ensure that the embedded book fits perfectly into your site’s layout.
Bonus Tip: If you would like to directly link to the Kindle book sample without having to embed it on a page, just use the following link (remember to replace the ASIN value):
