Can books already purchased from Kobo be put on a Kindle

by slgprecop / December 3, 2013 12:09 AM PST

I have an old Kobo ereader and I am planning on buying a new e-reader.
I have been thinking about the new Kindle Paperwhite but am wondering if the books (which I have lots) that I have already purchased through Kobo can be loaded onto the Kindle.

You need to get a program that will remove the DRM that is on your Kobo books. Once that is done you can upload your book by connecting your Kindle to your pc with a usb cord. I've had to do this for many books that I got for my old Sony Reader. Sony no longer makes them nor does it sell eBooks. So, rather than lose all of the books that I purchased I did use the procedure I described above. You can Google for a DRM removal program that meets your needs.
