so i have been reading a couple of papers on my kindle and have added a few annotations.
ive noticed that they get added to 'my clippings' on the home screen, but is there a way to get these annotations off the kindle onto my pc in a word doc or something similar?

Kindle keeps annotations on the internet
The easiest way is to go here:
Sign in and you can copy and review all hour highlights and notes there. You can copy and paste to any other documents.
You can also copy the Clippings file to your PC via a USB connection but that is far more trouble.
As one reads and finishes more books, try their Daily Review. It's use is described by Amazon as follows:
"Daily Review is a tool to help you review and remember the most significant ideas from your books. It shows you flashcards with either your highlights and notes or the Popular Highlights from one of your books.
Only books that you have marked as "read" are eligible for review, and Daily Review will take you through all of your read books, one per day.
The periodic review of ideas makes it easier to remember them. This works better if you space the reviews over increasing time intervals, a "Spacing Effect" that was first identified by German psychologist Hermann Ebbinghaus. Depending on how many books you have marked as "read", you will see a particular book again in the Daily Review in roughly 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and thereafter annually. You’re not limited to reviewing only one book per day; at the bottom of the flashcard you can select "Review another book".
That concept alone makes the Kindle WiFi a daring break through on how we read and remember what we read.

Another mechanism that is available is the ability to capture screen images using Shift+Alt+g. For example, you can open the book, 'View My Notes & Marks' and take screen captures of each page of these. Copy/move these to your computer and you can view them there. If you have an OCR program, you can extract text from the screen captures so you don't need to retype.
None of this is particularly convenient. I would like to see an 'export notes' function that would dump the current notes for a particular book to a text file. It would be easier to work with that way, and even better, if there were a way to email that file from Kindle to yourself or someone else. However, Amazon doesn't seem to implement all of my suggestions.
