Converting Kindle books for different readers

Can you read Kindle e-books on your Sony 650? yes you can. You need the Calibre free software (absolutely brilliant, do donate if you use it). It converts lots of e-book formats to whatever e-reader you have.

I didn't buy many e-books from Amazon for my briefly owned Kindle. However, Amazon has by far the widest range and you can still buy Kindle books via the Kindle app to read via PCs, Macs etc.

It works!
