There is the option to install an old version of Kindle for PC, which doesn't support the KFX format. I use the version 1.17. But those old versions can't be installed on the newest Mac OS. It's been said here that you can install them in a VM, though. (I don't have a Mac myself).

Basically that's it. Either register an eink Kindle and use the Amazon download method, or install an old Kindle for PC.
