That's why every time I buy an e-book I open it on my pc in one window and open Notepad in another adjacent window. I then proceed to type every word of the e-book in to Notepad before I even read the book. I don't want to be caught cold if Amazon sneezes. [/sarcasm]
WOW! You really type the entire book in Notepad, and then read them? Try this instead. It will be a lot easier. Download the Kindle DRM Removal tool from www.ebook-converter.com and use it to remove the DRM from your Kindle books (you can do three books for free). Then download Calibre from www.calibre-ebook.com and use it to convert the books from Kindle's .azw format to a different format that you can use on any tablet/ebook reader of your choice. Calibre will save the converted books to it's own default location, and you can even use the program to load the books onto your tablet/eBook reader. I've done this with every Kindle book I have, and used Calibre to load them on my $45.00 generic 7" eBook reader, and it's great.
sarÂ·casm [sahr-kaz-uhm]noun1. harsh or bitter derision or irony.2. a sharply ironical taunt; sneering or cutting remark: a review full of sarcasms.
Unlike you apparently, I don't know this person, and because I don't know her, I also don't know if she was being sarcastic or not, so I offered her a solution. Your smart-ass reply to me, on the other hand, offered nothing.
olyteddy had already indicated he was using sarcasm in that earlier post.
Presumably Drage thought you hadn't understood.
Weâ€™ve seen a lot of DRM come and go, we wonder when Amazon will decide to really let you own your e-books.
As soon as they realize they can't stop people from hacking and removing their DRM.:bigsmile:
Sorry to start a s***storm there. I thought the humor was pretty evident with
type every word of the e-book in to Notepad before I even read the book
As how could I type it in without reading it...
PS: Good tips on how to 'own' the book though.
How about saving the azw file to your PC?
