My question is what Kindle should I buy to do this?

Also, would I be able to copy my own books from Calibre to the Kindle if I should want to read them there (mainly epubs but can be converted in Calibre if needed) or would Amazon know these were not bought or downloaded from them and delete them.

Any help would be appreciated as I really don't want to read my books on a Kindle.
Any eink Kindle can be used to get your Amazon purchases into Calibre (at the moment). Not a Fire tablet, though. And not books borrowed via KU. For those you need an old Kindle.

And yes, you can sideload your existing books to your Kindle if you convert them to AZW3. Amazon won't delete them. Moreover, you can keep your Kindle in the permanent airplane mode after registering it via wifi.
