Can you change your FB status based on what you're reading from the KT?

I'm not talking about sharing a note or a highlight, but changing your Facebook or Twitter status about reading a book from the KT. I know you can do that via kindle.amazon.com but I can't find a way to do it on the Kindle.

Hmmm. At the end of the book (goto -> end) you can share/tweet that you have finished the book (at least on the Kindle Keyboard).

Not what you asked for, but maybe the next best thing.

Best regards,
Andy

If you are talking about 'reading status' (hope to read/reading/finished reading/stopped reading) then that has nothing to do with FB/Twitter. It is totally a kindle.amazon.com thing, and while you can probably get to there with the Kindle browser, it won't be pleasant to do so. It would be nice to see some integration between Kindle & kindle.amazon.com, if not Shelfari (which Amazon owns).

FB/Twitter is just sharing highlights/notes as you read, and as was mentioned, one last opportunity to post is presented when you get to the end of the book (which you can visit multiple times).

That's exactly what I was asking. Thanks.

Can you do the same when you start reading a book?

Doesn't appear to have that option. If you had a smartphone, you could take the few seconds to change your status on the phone before you delve into the book.
