Amazon Kindle comes to Windows PCs

Free app supports downloads from Kindle store

Amazon is bringing eBooks to PC users, with the help of a free app.

The app, will be available from November, will let PC users download and read eBooks from the online retailer's Kindle store, without having to fork out for its Kindle eBook reader.

And for those that have already purchased the Kindle, the app will still come in handy. It will sync the device with their PC, marking the last page they read, so users can start reading an eBook on their Kindle and continue on their PC without losing their page.

It also works multi-touch enabled Windows 7 PC, allowing you to turn the page or zoom using gestures on the screen.

The app can be downloaded from Amazon's website next month.
