I am interested in using the Kindle to do some academic research. Is there a way to get the note and highlight to show as one in My Clippings? Also, is there a way to get highlights and notes from the PC and Droid app to show up in My Clippings on Kindle or somehow get them into a text file like My Clippings?

Thanks, Larry

If it's an Amazon book, your notes and highlights are also saved at You can cut and paste them into a word processing document.

Is there another way, because it does not show up in my clippings on my kindle, which is how I want to transfer it to my computer.

The "My Clippings" file is only on the actual Kindle where the clippings were done. Inside actual books, you should be able to view notes, etc. Assuming that they are Amazon books, the suggestion is probably easiest, if you are using the apps, instead of an actual Kindle. You also need to make sure that you sync to Amazon, so that they have a copy of the notes and highlights (and have sync'ing turned on, of course).

I can't see the clippings or highlights link on "my kindle" at but I can get there via the link below.
strangely my account (which shows all my books) is now at but there I am told that I do not have any highlights.
It seems that I have succeed in bringing my books over to and all new books are shown there and not at .com, but the highlights still get uploaded only to .com
Additionally only .com will show me the email addresses of secondary (Android/PC) kindles. only shows the email address of my paperwhite.
