Kindle statistics

Mildly frustrated to learn that I’m generating all kinds of interesting data while using my kindle, such as how long I’ve spent reading a book, how many times I’ve read the book and so forth and yet none of it is (easily) directly accessible to me, or exposed by Amazon.

It is possible to get at this data, though it requires first jailbreaking the kindle and then installing further hacks to add usb networking and ssh servers. Then you can use Matt Browns scripts to parse the logs. Sigh…

On a happier note I realised today that kindle.amazom.com is not just an en-US thing, though it appears under publicised, few of my friends have really used it and a bit of a fath to use. You can follow me if you like though.
