Did you know that you can listen to your Kindle book with Alexa?
You can access your entire Kindle library via Alexa — and that means you can easily listen to your Kindle books right from where you left off!
I love listening to books with Alexa, and it’s a really handy feature that you can also switch between reading and listening to your Kindle books too!
“Alexa, play the Kindle book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” and Alexa will pick up where you left off on your Kindle.
Pro Tip #1: It’s handy to switch between reading a book on your Kindle and having Alexa read it to you. But don’t forget that it’s Alexa reading — and not a professional audio book reader like you get with an Audible audiobook. If you plan to primarily listen to an audiobook, I recommend buying and listening to the Audible version (not listening to the Kindle version).
Pro Tip #2: You can see your entire Kindle library in the Alexa app. Just tap “Play” on the bottom navigation bar. In addition to using Alexa voice commands to play the book over your speaker, you can also just tap the book you want to listen to in the Alexa app to start listening.
Pro Tip #3: You can’t speed up and slow down your Kindle books like you can with Audible. Hopefully that feature will come soon!
