Calibre becomes your Kindle in a way once you have added those "additions" from our good friend Alf.
I buy from Amazon all the time.
Though my wife has a Kindle, I use Kindle for PC as the "download to" option within Amazon. Once Kindle for PC has the purchased ebook, it is a simple matter to transfer the Amazon ebook into Calibre. Certain "actions" are performed in the background along that transfer route and I can then edit and the transfer to any of my Sony ereaders.
If you want to purchase from Amazon, then Calibre is one of the tools you really would be advised to have.
