    I already emailed them, and heard nothing.You would think with Amazon being integerated into ubuntu's search, you would expect to see a kindle app. Thats what I would think.

    Kindle Cloud Reader is not good for you? (read.amazon.com)

    I would definitely recommend Calibre as well: so much more control over your ebooks. Download from the site at:

    Winetricks should have the Windows Kindle App functional with Ubuntu. However, the Kindle Cloud Reader is probably a whole lot better. You can read books offline with the Kindle Cloud Reader. However, don't bother downloading your whole library, if you have a ton of books. There is a limit (and I'm not talking about the 50MB limit).

    But, to answer your question, the Kindle Cloud Reader kind of is a Linux version. However, it does require a web browser.

    The one thing I don't see mentioned here is that the Cloud Reader doesn't allow one to read their magazine subscriptions. There really needs to be an app for Linux. I'm currently without my Kindle due to it being replaced, but I still want to read my magazines while I wait.
