My UK Echo reads Kindle Books!

Just found a selection for Kindle Books in the alexa app. Clicked on it and the Echo can read some of them (mainly copyright pages for new books). But... for books out of copyright it seems to be reading them in full. It's now reading Far From the Madding Crowd to me!

Yeah,
mine was reading them last week, even though it wasnt showing the kindle app in the Alexa settings. (It is now though).

I tried it on The Count of Monte Cristo. It's still miles away from a human-read audiobook.

A few days ago it was reading full, new, books - but now the kindle part has disappeared from alexa app again. :-(
