How to take screenshots of e-books on Android?

    Hi all, I've been looking for a way to highlight quotes on my Android tablet, but they need to be un-editable so that I can't accidentally edit them before they're uploaded. I then want to upload these "un-editable quotes" to Evernote.

    Someone told me I could take screenshots of highlights I've made in e-books on my Android tablet and then upload these images to Evernote. This would be perfect because it would mean I couldn't accidentally edit the quotes on my Android tablet, but I don't know which app will allow me to take a screenshot of a highlighted quote and then upload it to Evernote.

    Please help me!

    Taking a screenshot is a native part of most recent versions of android, you shouldn't need an app.

    If you let us know what device you have we can let you know how to accomplish it

    Yes, it will capture everything on the screen.

    If you'd like to crop it, you can do so with your gallery app :)

    Is there an app I can use that'll just take a screenshot of the e-book I'm reading, like the page number and the actual text?

    Or an app that'll upload screenshots to Evernote?

    I think you have to do as suggested. Take a screen shot. Open it in gallery, crop it, save it and upload it to evernote. Even if an app exists ( you may be able to automate some of this using tasker) The cropping of the bit you want would need to be done manually I think.

    Thanks for your reply!

    One problem I currently have is that there's only a couple lines of text displayed on my 10.1 inch screen. How can I have more text?
