Yes. Download the Kindle for PC app and Calibre. Then visit Apprentice Alf (google it) to learn how to liberate your books. Once liberated, Calibre will convert them for you.

I'd be surprised if there are any content stores that require ownership of a specific device to buy content anymore. They might still require specific devices to consume the content, but they won't stop you from buying it.
