Questions for Kindle users


I have had a Kindle for a few months now and am anticipating the arrival of my next one soon. I have only purchased e-books from Amazon at this point. I was wondering how other users of the Kindle and Calibre handle their files. I was hoping to ask a few questions and would greatly appreciate any insight.

My main goal is to correct/enhance some shoddy e-books (Correct inaccurate title/author info, fix formatting errors, maybe even correct typos). From what I have gleaned this is possible with Calibre's editing features. Am I correct? Does anyone else use Calibre for this purpose?

If I understand correctly, Calibre does not read/write in the .azw format. In this case, does anyone buy from Amazon, then add them to your Calibre library, then return them to the Kindle in another format? Would you recommend this? Are their any disadvantages to doing so?

Thanks in advance for any information
