What did you think of our guide to free Kindle DRM removal Did it give you a clear idea of how to remove DRM for Kindle books, or does the process seem too convoluted and cumbersome Is there another piece of software you like that supports removing DRM from Kindle books Let us know in the comments below. Thank you for reading.
What I then found I needed to do was change the name of the folder that has your kindle books in and create a new one of the original name. Now when you open Kindle PC it will not see any of your books, so you will need to download them into this new folder. Now transfer those new files into Calibre and, for me at least, the DRM was removed.
I used the current version of Calibre, installed the Apprentice Alf plugin and added KFX input plugin. For the Alf plugin I customized it and chose the first option for kindle readers and put in my kindle serial number. I downloaded the file from my orders section of amazon and it converted just fine. This was after trying multiple ways including using old version of software on my MacBook.
Was able to have it work for my small selection of books, I was using latest Calibre 6.8, and DeDRM 7.2.1The key for me is I needed to do as Calibre suggested, download the books from amazon website for usb transfer, then was able to decrypt those[azw3 & azw files), was not able to decrypt .kfx I pulled directly from my device directly (Huge size difference 5090 KB vs 774kb).Very nice to free up my purchases and port over to my nook, thankyou all for the continuous feedback or I would have given up.
You can read Kindle-formatted e-books on your Amazon Kindle or the free Kindle App for smart phones tablets and desktops. You will need: a library card and PIN, an Amazon Kindle or a Kindle app on another type of device, an Amazon account, Wi Fi, a browser where you can check out e-books.

Amazon is going to be supporting the EPUB format later this year. Customers will be able to use Send to Kindle to upload EPUB books directly to their e-reader. Amazon is working on the system integration right now and should be rolled out globally in August. You will be able to send EPUB books using your Send to Kindle email address. The company will also be adding EPUB support to the free Kindle app for iOS and Android devices and the Send to Kindle desktop app for PC and Mac.
But what if the book you're looking for isn't available Kindles aren't as locked into the Amazon store as you might think. It's possible to side-load free e-books onto your Kindle and read them at no extra cost.
There are plenty of ways to access free e-books for your Kindle. Sometimes it's as simple as contacting a self-published author looking to grow their brand. Other times it takes downloading an app from Apple or Android to find the book you want. Below are two of the best ways to find free e-books for the Amazon Kindle.
Libby is an app developed by OverDrive that's available on Android and iPhone. This is a great option for finding free e-books for users with Samsung tablets or iPads. The app lets you connect your library card and read books that your local library has on its shelves. Most public libraries have catalogs of library books that are available for free download.

Step 4: When you are finished reading, you can long tap the title (hold your finger on the screen for a few seconds) to bring up a list of options about the title: Delete will remove it from your device, but not your account. Return will delete the book from your device and remove it from your account (freeing up one of your simultaneous borrows). Share will let you tell everyone about what you're reading! Please note that Return is only available for Adobe EPUB format eBooks.
Over the years I have made great use of the free books available on the Gutenberg website. Is it possible, with a Kindle via the internet, to take onboard for reading, books from Gutenberg As the Kindle has a USB port, is it possible to connect it to the G5 and have it appear on the desktop, so that PDF and MP3 files can be dragged and dropped into it for reading and listening to
Hi, thanks so much for your instructions. I downloaded Calibre, converted my epub books to mobi then connected my kindle fire. However Calibre is not connecting to my device. I have closed the programme, disconnected the Kindle, but nothing works. Any advice Thanks so much.
Kaye you must always be aware of the rights you have to any book, epub or otherwise, and the laws are different in each country. You should not be stripping out DRM (digital rights management) but many epub books are free and available to use as you wish.
i can convert a pdf file using calibre to an ebub file but the problem is that when i send it to the device it still turns up as a pdf file. on the computer i can chose to view pdf or epub but on my kindle it only sends the pdf. do you know how i can chose the epub version to send if so then thankyou! files that are already epub to begin with work fine though.
If you are not transferring ebook files to your Fire but are reading them through the web interface instead, you won't have a problem with Springer or ACLS titles. EBSCO's eBook collection titles can be downloaded on the Kindle Fire HD and ebrary titles can be read using the Silk browser. Springer titles can be read without downloading them, but they don't open up immediately. To access them:
The free Calibre E-book Management software has loads of great features for managing your ebook library and is ideal for converting any format to be readable on your Amazon Kindle. You can quickly convert to AZW3 by following some simple steps.
On tablets and ereaders, you might not be prompted for where to save your file, and we have had reports of different locations being used from time to time, or by different software. You might need to look around in your downloaded files areas.
Many or all Kindles allow you to install alternate eBook reader software. Advice we have received (which might need adjustment for your specific device, or if some versions of software are updated from when these instructions were written): install a third party EPUB reader and start downloading the EPUB files instead of the Kindle files from Project Gutenberg. You may want to read up on installing third party apps on the Kindle you have. Advantages of EPUB files over Kindle files include: that they are much smaller than Kindle files and that they work on the Apple iPad too.
The Kobo reader online store includes free access to 100 of the most popular Project Gutenberg titles. You need to go through the registration process to get access to the store. Direct transfer of downloaded eBooks from a computer to the Kobo did not immediately work for us, but is supposed to be supported. The Kobo supports PDF and EPUB formats, and has a simple built-in Web browser that can be used to read eBooks online. Project Gutenberg would like to thank Kobo for providing free evaluation readers in 2010.

Download/install the free Freading app from the app store Once the Freading app finishes installing tap the app to enter your Adobe ID and password and activate your device with Freading. Tap the \"i\" in the bottom right corner, enter your Adobe ID username and password, and tap activate.
