Do you like Amazon’s “Look Inside” feature to read a free sample of a book before purchasing it? So do I! And now Amazon has given people the ability to grab the embed code for “the vast majority of Kindle books” and place it in your website / blog / emails / Facebook posts / Twitter posts, etc.
There are two embedding options offered. One is a link to be clicked which opens a new browser tab with the book sample.
Example code (with spaces added so it doesn’t actually become a link here in my post):
https :// read.amazon.com/kp/embed?asin=B017747888&preview=newtab&linkCode=kpe&ref_=cm_sw_r_kb_dp_IltJwb1S991KA
And the link:
The second embedding option allows you to embed actual code into your website – like a widget – that will show you the preview right in the page rather than opening a new tab.
Example code (with spaces added so you can see the actual code):
< iframe type=”text/html” width=”336″ height=”550″ frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen style=”max-width:100%” src=” https: //read.amazon.com/kp/card?asin=B017747888&preview=inline&linkCode=kpe&ref_=cm_sw_r_kb_dp_IltJwb1S991KA” >< /iframe >
