There’s a lot of confusion right now among technology, profit taking, ownership, books as physical objects and books as reading experiences.
Next move, I read some more online and discoverd the existes of Calibre, an open source software that will translate e-pub or whatever for kindle (or just about anything to anything, actually). You are supposed to be able to have books emailed to your Kindle account, but why? It also loads directly to the device if attached to the computer, so I’ve translated my first book (just Calibre’s handbook) and downloaded. Cool.
This is all new and happening fast.
