Hahaha! no no no no no! :P Actually, I read that on Amazon site itself (I can't find the page now), but I was talking about text-to-speech (for which you don't have to buy an audio book, if the ebook publisher allows the function).

Try asking for it in its very own feature requests thread: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=165669

Oh thank you! I didn't know about librivox. Interesting!

Nope... Books you sideload onto your Kindle also sync. You can put any old mobi either straight onto your Kindle with a cable, or email it to your special kindle email address (you get one for each device that is linked to Amazon). The book is added to your Kindle account, and syncs over all your devices.

With Kobo, all your sideloaded books are not added to your Kobo account, so they do not sync over your different devices.
