About Kindles

If you don't have a chance to access all the great materials available at Bizzell Library (books for check-out, books on reserve, including comic books and graphic novels, plus Kindles on reserve), buying your own Kindle books is another excellent option.

You can even export those highlights to Diigo (that's part of the Diigo Chrome extension). Here's a screenshot of my Kindle Notebook, showing the option to export all my highlights for any given book to Diigo:
