What does the bold part mean?

The advantages of the Amazon Kindle are many. For starters, this cost-effective electronic book device allows you to link in to Amazon’s vast multitude of books, and by multitude that would be millions, for a streamlined way to find the perfect read.

Thank you Matthew. Your explanation was great and helpful.

May I ask two questions?

First, does "streamlined" mean "Designed or organized to give maximum efficiency; compact."?

Second, does "read" mean "book" here?
we also have phrases like "a good/exciting, etc. read" meaning "something that is enjoyable/exciting etc to read".
