On the other hand, if it is the so called "kePub" format then no; you can't do diddly with it.
Thanks for the quick response!
I was worried you were going to say that. So basically the $8-$12 dollars I spent "buying" these ebooks only gives me the ability to read/use them as long as its through BORDERS or KOBO. One of the downsides to purchasing a digital instead of hard paper copy of a book I guess.
