How to convert a Kindle book to PDF

Amazon continues to be the leader in eBooks thanks to its popular Kindle devices and apps. However, because of Digital Rights Management (DRM), you can only open Kindle eBooks on Amazon Kindle hardware or through official Kindle apps such as ones for iPad. Unfortunately, this limitation means you can not open these books anywhere else since they are saved in Amazon’s proprietary AZW file format. Luckily, you can convert these files into PDF format, so they’s readable in other locations.

Whether you should convert your AZW files to PDF is open to debate. Yes, if you plan on using the file for yourself. However, due to copyright, do not plan to share these PDFs with others since it’s not legal.
