Converting Kindle ebook to print?

I have a learning disability that makes it hard for me to follow text on a screen, so I like the printed page -- but some of the books I need exist only as ebooks (I use Kindle for PC). Is there any software, yet, that would allow me to print out an ebook? I don't care about preserving formatting or graphics, it's just the printed text content for my own use that I need.

Sure, not a problem. I do this for craft patterns in ebook form all the time. Open your book in Kindle for PC. Copy and paste into a word processing program. The bad news is that you have to do this for every single page.

If you don't have DRM on your book, read it into Calibre. Open the ebook in View. Then, it will allow you to copy from the start to the end provided you have adequate memory resources. Paste into word processor. Be sure to save before printing.

Have you tried an e-ink reader, like a regular Kindle? The display really is very paper-like, and utterly unlike reading on a PC or LCD.
