2.0 out of 5 stars The Kindle for PC Version of this Book Sucks, 2 July 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black & Decker the Complete Guide to Gazebos and Arbors: Ideas, Techniques and Complete Plans for 15 Great Landscape Projects (Black & Decker Complete Guide To...) (Paperback)
I think the paper version of this book, in all likelyhood, is well worth the money. However I purchased the Kindle version to read on my laptop. The problem is that the book contains many annotated architectural drawings and the annotations are mostly impossible to read because of the tiny font size. Kindle for PC will not allow you to zoom-in on a drawing embedded in the text. You can only change the size and line density of the body text.

You can get some magnification by downloading 'Virtual Magnifying Glass' from SourceForge (free); however I found that fonts quickly become pixelated and again unreadable.

It is about time Amazon upgraded the Kindle for PC app. to make zoom on drawings / images available - like on the actual Kindle tablets. Get your finger out Amazon!
