How to read EPUB files on your Kindle!

Or - how to convert .epub files to .mobi

A good thing cannot be mentioned too often! Here you'll find a simple recipe of how to convert any .EPUB e-book files, with or without DRM, to Kindle's .MOBI format. You only need a little bit of patience and install two freeware programs and off you go.

The recipe you'll find HERE

It is newly updated to match changes in one of the external links.

The software I use

This freeware removes the DRM lock which many publishers put on their e-book files.

Calibre does the actual job of converting the clean, unlocked e-book file from the .EPUB format to Kindle's .MOBI format.

If you have any questions or problems concerning this, please do no hesitate to contact me on my e-mail: 


This said - It is up to all of you to take the moral responsibility for this solution not to be abused! The e-book files are to be treated as any other printed books with Copyright! This is a way for you as a Kindle user to be able to read whatever e-books you find on your preferred e-book reader!

Today I have bought the hideously expensive Norwegian e-book "Vinterstengt" av Jørn Lier Horst, removed the DRM and put it on my Kindle. And just as you know - Don't you EVER complain about Amazon's prices. In Norway I paid $41.50 for my new e-book crime novel...!!!  (no wonder i just loooove Amazon!)
