Is there a way to search inside books using the web based Cloud Reader? I can search on my physical Kindle but this feature seems to be missing. Thanks.

Let us know if you find the answer. Wish I knew

@ Fud53,

Hi, "I'm no rocket surgeon" either, but i DID contact customer support, and they said that "This feature is not yet available", and that they will "notify asap."

I'm afraid it's going to take a while...

i posted here in order to increase the volume of this thread, so that hopefully *somebody* will take heed :)

This is really frustrating from one company who claim is one best, shame on amazon

Sure wish this feature existed. Let me guess, some lame copyright reason as to why we can't search for a keyword in a book we paid for?

This is really disappointing. I purchased a textbook and I assumed this feature would make it easier to find stuff...I guess not.

I also share the overarching sentiment. I cannot believe the feature is not included.

No they haven't added this feature. The teaser products should should be as uniform as possible across all installation platforms; this is they way of apple products....

I'm talking about strategy. Love Apple stock don't like the products or the rules. I mean that most of their process work across all installation bases equally. Yes this may mean iOS; tablet, Mac, touch, phone, but their concentration on the feature richness across all platforms is something that developers can stride for. As a side note, using an iPhone our tablet is sometimes infuriating; their products are so "user friendly" you don't need a manual...just an appointment at the Genius bar. That is more user friendly? Give me a beak.

I can't believe that I can search my Kindle items on my PHONE but not on my computer. What a ridiculous waste of space Cloud Reader is.

Let it be known, far and wide, that the Amazon Cloud Reader will forever suck until it is able to search text within the books it presents.

*bump* :), I also would like to have search in my cloud reader.

Yes, you can search with the Kindle app for PC. I hope they eventually include the feature in the Cloud Reader.

Posted on May 16, 2012 3:35:24 AM PDT
Agreed, please add search to cloud reader! Thanks!

This is really surprising. Amazon's usually on the ball; I do most of my personal consumer business with Amazon in some way or another, and the lack of a Search feature won't put me off them, but it sure might to a casual consumer whose first foray into Amazon/Kindle products is using the Cloud reader.
