Mac users can now download Amazon’s Kindle software, which will synchronize books between an actual Kindle, compatible mobile devices (currently iPhone/iPod touch and BlackBerry), and the desktop client.

Like the PC version, you’ll only be able to access your books—no magazines, newspapers, or blogs can be read on anything except an actual Kindle device—but your last read page in any book you own will be synchronized and you’ll be able to see any bookmarks or notes you’ve made.

Other features include the choice of 10 font sizes and the ability to adjust words per line. You can also “read books in full color including children’s books, cookbooks, travel books, and textbooks.” Take that, electronic ink!

Amazon has promised to add “full text search and the ability to create and edit notes and highlights” to the desktop software in the near future.
