Readwise and Kindle Personal Documents

I finally figured out how to move highlights and annotations taken from personal documents (not items purchased in the Kindle Store) that were made on both my Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Android app. I am usually carrying my smartphone but still prefer reading on my Paperwhite. There are lots of occasions when I’d like to read on my phone but do not have my Kindle Paperwhite handy.

The steps described in the Readwise tutorials below allow me to read, highlight, and take notes on either device while ensuring that I can still easily export those highlights and notes with the book title, author, and location data to Readwise. Once saved to Readwise, I download them as text notes on my computer and phone. Yay!
