i have an Ipad with the kindle app on it but this is no good when trying to read in the sun (only good for lying in bed reading).......i am going on holiday and would like to transfer some books from my kindle app to my ereader..............is this possible
Thanks all..I have a sony PRS-650...........I dont really buy books on kindle app, I usually wait and get the odd free book (some of which are usually very good) and I would like to take some of them away on holiday with me on my sony ereader but don't think i will be able to...........My ereader does take a memory card but I still cant manage to find out how to move books from kindle app to memory card.
Whilst they are free ebooks they'll still be in the Kindle format and need to be converted but they may also have DRM protection. If so then technically it won't be possible.
To get access to the books themselves it maybe better to install 'Kindle for PC' and download them on to your PC (or Mac) instead. Then install Calibre software convert them to epub and transfer (using Calibre) to your Sony. But if they have DRM protection as mentioned above this won't be possible.
I do suggest you go over to Mobileread forums. They have very knowleable people over there.
Yes carpetmojo (and anyone else for that matter) Alf is a nice friend to have.
And, as you intimated, sometimes kindlebooks don't have DRM, but it's a case of try it and see......
'Course, that also means that, in the "justification" mantra regarding DRM, by Amazon, and others, there are obviously some books that, according to the line that DRM is to prevent piracy, they consider not worth protecting ! What a load of old codswallop .....
