I am a proud owner of a Kindle device and I love reading books.
While I am reading a book I always highlight the sentences that I consider more interesting. When I finished a book, I found very useful to copy all the highlights in a notepad to create a summary of the book (usually I save them in workflowy). In same cases, for really interesting books, I often turn the summary to a blog post.
I created a very simple application that helps me to automatically extract highlights from all my kindle books. It is open source and you can find it in this GitHub repository: KindleBookSummaryCreator.
It is straightforward to use:
1. Connect the Kindle to your PC
2. Run the application
The clipping file should be automatically detected. If not, click the Detect button.
Specify the output folder.
