Wanna catch up on that book your reading at home? Sitting at the mechanics waiting for you car, and the magazines there remind your of National Geographics of old? Well now there is a solution… with Amazon’s Kindle app, still in beta, you can browse 420,000+ books from the online database!

Wireless subscribers who download Amazon’s free beta app to their BlackBerry handsets will have access to more than 420,000 Kindle books, including New York Times bestsellers as well as the latest releases. Users also will have direct access to free content and previews as well as their previously purchased titles, which are stored on Amazon’s servers.

I myself would find this very useful from time to time, as I always find myself in a situation where I could read a good book, and this would make it easy to do so! To get it on your phone just type this into your browser amazon.com/kindlebb, you can also check out a couple simulated screens. (1 and 2)

Read the full story here, Enjoy!
