This book has been available in a POD (print on demand) version arranged by CreateSpace.com/Amazon.com.
This book, with commutal reading* described in Part 1 and personal collection of English expressions in Part 2, was also released in digitized edition in the first instance on the 28th of March, 2014. As its author, I'd really appreciate your visit to kindle books at amazon.com to make a search with c-pen and kindle as keyword or your clicking the in-parentheses coloured title [Enjoy Communal Reading with C-Pen and Kindle for Summarizing 3rd edition] (ASIN#B00K4BS4Z8) where hyperlinks set up between Table of Contents and the contents would have you jumping to your favorite pages to help you save time.
The following is excerped from part of Introduction page:
We are likely to seek professional advices like editorial reviews in purchasing a book. In summarizing books, academic papers, a wide variety of materials, regardless of digitized or paper-printed, two possible approaches, besides making use of professional skills, would be taken, that is, syntactically computerized and collective-intelligence oriented ones.
Part 1 of this book takes the latter approach based on the thoughts of “Wisdom of the Crowds.”
Part 2 guides you, the readers of this volume, to make a personal collection of your favorite English expressions while either taking part in Part 1 – the sumup project – or not, and even if not, Part 2 takes an advanced digital device-aided approach to help English learning beginners as well collect favorite expressions enjoyably so that they will be able to grade up their writing and speaking capabilities; depending on the purposes, concerns, preferences, capability of a book club or class or individual, a wide range of books and materials could be selected.
In the 2nd part of Part 2, added is personally collecting of English expressions with one more function out of the multiple uses of Kindle.
Especially for English learning beginners, Penguin Readers series, Oxford Readers series (incl. Oxford Bookworms Club: Stories for Reading Circles), Macmillan Readers and the like will be appropriate for Part 2.
While keyword indexing that I am conscious concerns a high degree of usability for a book's target audience and also a liability to the book is incomplete as far as this book is concerned, I would really appreciate it if you could compensate for the incompleteness by looking at both Table of Contents and Index.

(*) Bezos says the act of communal reading guarantees the group's undivided attention. Writing a memo is an even more important skill to master. "Full sentences are harder to write," he says. "They have verbs. The paragraphs have topic sentences. There is no way to write a six-page, narratively structured memo without having clear thinking." Excerpted from Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon.com: The Ultimate Disrupter, an article in Fortune, Nov. 16, 2012
A team of students working on a project can now reach for a new concept just at the moment they need it to solve a problem—the most powerful learning incentive of all.
