Since nowadays a lot of users read their books straight from digital devices rather than going, the old-fashioned way, to the library, many tools have been developed to facilitate the access of as many users as possible to the literature stored in one of the many dedicated formats.
The variety of e-book types is doubled by an abundance of devices which are more or less specialized on certain kinds of files. In case you have some volumes saved onto a Kindle reader and wish to export them to your mobile phone, for example, you will have to change their initial format into one that is compatible with the target device.
One of the many utilities that are able to perform the needed transformations is Kindle Converter, a simple and easy to use program that will help you turn e-books from the proprietary format (AZW) into other filetypes, more common and widespread.
The application can handle individual files but it’s main strong point is the ability to process entire folders at once. The output formats which Kindle Converter deals with include PDF, ePub, Mobi, RTF, TXT as well as HTML.
An interesting feature of this particular software solution is the fact that it will enable you to remove DRM protection from AZW files transferred from a Kindle 3 through the USB cable. The only requirement is that you input the serial number of the device, as this is the standard procedure.
All in all, the decent performance and ease of use recommend this utility for quick conversions. However, those who are looking for a bit more than a simple load and convert utility and wish to personalize a bit the output, might turn to some other solution than Kindle Converter.
