Just asking...

Does anybody out there know how to buy Kindle books from Amazon without actually having a Kindle?
Then I can use it on my Sony (brand new).

You can use the computer-based kindle reader (e.g., kindle for pc) to download purchased books. However, ...

You won't have joy trying to read books purchased from Amazon on a Sony. Amazon DRM (Digital Rights Management) is incompatible with Sony's. Both companies are trying very hard to maintain a walled garden. Unless you strip the DRM from the book, you are stuck in one or the other.

Don't ask here about stripping DRM, because forum rules forbid such discussions. Suffice it to say that google is your friend.

Kindle4PC and then Google is your friend. Skindle is a possible search term.
