Can I add books to 'Save for later' directly from my account on Amazon.com

... I'm referring to the 'real' amazon.com on my computer, not the storefront...

As convenient as the kindle is for looking for books, it would be helpful to be able to do this from the web and have it show up on my kindle next time I finish a book and want to browse books I thought were interesting...

If you've discovered that this is possible, let me know...

I haven't seen a way to do this, however you can always "download a free sample" to your Kindle directly from you computer, and it will be there when you are ready for it......just click on the sample and choose the "buy now" button.....

I agree. Don't know why you can't put Kindle books into your wish list. Seems weird.

You can, using Amazon's Universal Wish List button.

You can also do it without that, if the book has user reviews. Go to the reviews page and look at the upper right for the add to wishlist option.

These also work for adding mp3 downloads to a wishlist.

I have an Amazon wish list set up for Kindle books - but haven't found any way to access it from Kindle. It's not on the store home page and when I tried to put in the URL via Whispernet, it burped. Think that it would be a great tool to have if someone can figure out how to make it work.

cheers

Like dg I use the samples as my "to-read" list. It would be more convenient if there were folders, though. I could put all my unread samples in one place.
