Amazon’s Online Book Beta – Ugh!

Firefox – PC. Cannot annotate a bookmark. Tried highlighting “notes” and typing – does not work. Tried putting cursor to the right of Note: and still cannot type anything. VERY disappointed – since I was going to use this to set up chapter links … since the TOC page is not hyperlinked to chapters (this is lame, guys!).

Ditto annotating a highlight — the text box has no visible spot to indicate the start of the text field and clicking around in the window has proven useless.

There is no “go back to the page that I was just on” option either. The incredibily one-page-at-a-time linearity is frustrating.

On the plus side, the “go to page number” feature actually goes to the printed page number. Good for you!

My kludge at the moment is to highlight a chapter title — that is giving me links to each “start” page. But I shouldn’t have to do this! These links should be pre-populated!
