Can I load amazon or BN books on my 505?

Dear all, im a newbie so apoligies for the dumb question.

Question is if I can load amazon or BN book on my 505? I read somewhere that I need to de-DRM them.......but what is the easiest path for this.....should I go with Amazon or BN?
All I want to do is read, not learn how to be a expert de-DRM'er.

It is certainly easier to de-DRM BN EPUB books because you can then just place them on your Sony reader. Amazon books and BN eReader format books require conversion after de-DRMing which complicates the process slightly. Also, de-DRMing BN EPUB books is a bit easier than eReader/Amazon books.

Whatever Google finds for that particular file type — there arent' many to choose from.
