Great Author Tip: See What People Like in Your Book

The only good thing that came of my disastrous attempt to do a hangout on Google+ this week was that as a function of finally logging onto the platform for the first time in three months, I got some great information. When browsing the awesome updates of my friend Scott Stratten (@unmarketing), I came across this gem.

Can’t read my tiny screenshot?

Basically if you’re an author and you want to see what people are highlighting in the Kindle versions of your books, enter your book title here. 

See what sentences/paragraphs/pages folks are loving (or hating) in the books you’ve written.

Here are the results for Twitter for Good. Pretty standard — folks highlighting sentences and paragraphs that have an overview of the tactical information I share (i.e. the T.W.E.E.T. model for how to best use Twitter).

Cool, no?

Here’s hoping they like what you think they should be highlighting.

  2. This is a great Kindle feature. By the way – I have 209 highlights in my Kindle copy of “Twitter for Good” 🙂 One feature I wish that Amazon would add, is that when we go to our highlights page, we could then export that information to a doc with all of the full highlights – On the current highlights page at kindle.amazon.com there is a limit to the number of highlights and number of characters in a individual highlight that can be shared ). This would be really helpful when using the highlights feature for research purposes in particular.
