Buying on Amazon and reading on Odyssey

Hi,

Sorry if my question may look silly and/or candid, but I wish to prevent any mishap!

So I would like to buy "Kane and Abel" by Jeffrey Archer in English, and so far, the cheapest looks to be on Amazon.com.

I am just worrying about the impact of DRM, which I am not familiar to. I have an account with Amazon, I have Adobe Digital Editions (unused yet) and an account (unused), I have Calibre of course for the conversion to ePub, but I am not sure on how to proceed starting from the purchase on Amazon.com.

Let say that I want to stick to legal, so I would like to enjoy the book on my Odyssey with its DRM. How do I do it? I have found no recent article (i.e. > 2010) on the Internet.

Thanks in advance for your feedbacks!

Vincent

You can't read the book, if acquired from Amazon, on your Odyssey with the DRM intact.

In order to convert a DRM'd Kindle book to ePub the DRM has to be removed.

Thanks Brian, so let us suppose I want to get rid of the DRM.

So to summarize, if I install a DRM remover as a Calibre plugin:
- I buy the book on Amazon
- I get the .azw3 file on my PC
- I load it into Calibre (which, as far as I understand, will remove automatically the DRM upon loading)
- I convert the file to ePub
- (I send it to Odyssey)

And that's it?

We cannot discuss the procedure and/or steps for removing DRM.

However, you may wish to Google someone named Alf.
