    Thanks for this - it is good to get details of free books that aren't just for Kindle. I have a Sony ereader

    Last week I came across some free Amazon ebooks on this site and it has details of how to download an application on Amazon that allows you to read Kindle ebooks on your PC

    It's possible to put kindle books on your Sony eReader, it just isn't quite legal.

    It's a similar argument to the ripping CDs to MP3s though - you've paid for the item, why can't you change the format to suit your gadgets?

    If you can get the Kindle books into .mobi format then freeware 'calibre' can convert them into ePub, which the Sony reader understands.

    Google is your friend here.
