Should I use Kindle?

Can I only read Amazon eBooks with the Kindle?


Actually, you can only read e-books in the formats of Amazon with the Kindle. These are mostly files with the extensions AZW or AZW3. On all other eBook readers, however, the EPUB format is the most common. To use EPUBS and other formats on Kindle, you need a converter.

So all eBooks can be read on a Kindle

A Kindle is different from other eBook readers on the market. With a Kindle, you can only read eBooks from Amazon itself. Other formats such as EPUB, PDF or CBR cannot be opened here. However, you do not have to do without these books because of this. Instead, you can convert the eBooks into a suitable format. The best way to do this is to use the free Caliber program.
