kindle book loading
I am thinking of getting a kindle, can you tell me is it possible to upload my own ebooks via the computer or I am tied into using Amazon purchase?

As long as the books are in a format the Kindle can read (AZW, TXT, PDF, MOBI), yes. It's called sideloading.

Kindle appears as a removable disk when plugged in via usb, any books you put in the Documents folder that are in azw or mobi format (plus a handful of others like pdf/txt that l_macd mentions) will be useable directly. The rest, like epub, you can convert with calibre.
