Kindle highlights

I got this fascinating link on Kindle highlights from Kottke - a site I read every day without fail.

This link has the most highlighted passages from Kindle. As kottke rightly points out, much of it is bestseller driven - which is kind of obvious, but take a look at the link and read through the links.

Most of the passages highlighted are philosophical, spiritual, related to happiness, contentment and suchlike.

So, one possibility is that the people who buy Kindle are "alike" or read "alike" or those who highlight passages have similar interests - or it could be that the demographic profile is such that it is looking for contentment of some sort. It points to a slightly mature readership in all probability...

This is interesting and a goldmine of a social networking opportunity too...
