And this is something I don't understand. If I paid for the Kindle book... who cares WHAT format I use or read it in? Also, I've seen that I cannot even LEND some Kindle books. And you are limited on how many times. That is big time irritating. If I have a paperback, I can lend it to anyone who wants it, until the pages are falling apart, but if I have a digital copy, I can't lend it!

I'm willing to honor copyright to not COPY and give away to someone... but if I want to convert for easier reading for MYSELF... why is this wrong?

I think, like everything else, laws are becoming way too invasive for our own good...

Just my 2 cents...

Deborah

Remember that some Kindle files are also protected with DRM, so extracting the files is a violation of copyr.... yadeyada.

I like the Kindle app on the iPad better than a standard Kindle.
