I now feel required to not read any of the previous posts for context and tiresomely point out that you can get ePubs from the Kobo store. I think the rules of this thread stipulate that statement must follow any mention of kepubs and Kobo.

Hello JSWolf,

I installed Calibre in November last year, so I could convert my Amazon-books to epub-format.
I had never heard of it before.
I installed some plug-in, but now I see that I still haven't installed a lot of plug-ins. And I don't even see a de-DRM plugin in the list of plug-ins that I haven't installed yet.
I had never heard of plug-ins before and had I known there was something called a de-DRM plugin, I never would have bought epubsoft, being the "sucker" that I am.
Honestly, if I look at some of the things that are written on this forum, looks so "technical" to me, that it could have well been written in Chinese. I

Can you tell me where I can find this de-DRM plug-in for Calibre, please? That would save me a lot of work.

Yup, Kobo is the main store I buy books from. The books get downloaded as epubs to my download folder on my pc, the non-drm get uploaded directly to Calibre for conversion. If infected I have to open them with my Sony reader software, then find the book where it gets dumped, then have Calibre upload it to disinfect it so that I can convert it as another epub & Mobi.

I am then able to delete the copy from my download folder. I don't own either a Kindle or Kobo, and once converted they get manually transferred to my main phone, and the phones I have as backup as readers and mp3 players, as well as my Samsung tablet.

If online books stores want people to buy their books, it is in their best interest to allow people download in whatever format suits the hardware that they have. That's why I would never get a B&N reader or books.

I like my Nooks quite a bit.

The benefit of being able to remove DRM and convert books is that you can use whatever device suits you, even a B&N Nook.
