Very long KFX book crashes on Voyage

I bought the Cambridge collection (71 volumes, 40,000+ printed pages) when it was on sale (mentioned in the deals forum). I downloaded it to my Voyage but it kept rebooting the Voyage when I tried to read it. I tried to copy it to Calibre, but was informed that this was a KFX formatted book and suggested I download via the USB option. That worked, I copied it to my Voyage and now I can read it.

Question: Do you think a time is coming when non-KFX options from Amazon will not be available? This is the first time I've run into this issue (but it's also the first time I tried to read a collection of books that massive crammed into one file).

Yes probably. I imagine it will take a little while to get there. At some point all the AZW3 only and below working and in use readers are going be a tiny fraction of the user base and Amazon will decide it's not worth the headache of creating books with old formats for only a few thousand users.

But they still haven't dropped .Mobi yet so I don't think we're quite there. Maybe in a decade or two.

I have a 9M AZW3 Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio(聊齋誌異) which always randomly restart my Kindle after I read a few chapters, a very spooky book...

That wouldn't be too bad then. I'm 65 so a "couple decades" is pretty much a lifetime warranty.
