How To Read a Kindle Book On Other Platforms

Right now, my books are exclusive to Amazon for the next 90 days. Some of my readers have been asking how they can get a copy of my new releases for their Nook, iBooks or Kobo or other non-Kindle eReader.

First, if you have a Mac, PC or Smartphone, you can always read Kindle books on them using the Kindle App. It’s free and you can download it off the Apple App Store.


Second, if you prefer reading eBooks on your dedicated eReader, such as a Nook or Kobo, you can download free software and convert a Kindle book to an ePub and read it on your Nook or Kobo.

It’s pretty easy: You add your Kindle eBook to the library in Calibre and then you convert it to ePub and save it to your desktop. Then you load it onto your device. It takes all of 5 minutes and voila! You now have the ePub, which can be loaded onto your Kobo or Nook.


Try it and see how easy it is! I use Calibre when I prepare my books for publication so it’s great reliable software and it’s free.

Hope you find it useful. šŸ™‚

  1. I have a Nook but prefer the Kindle platform as I used to have a Kindle before it died. I downloaded the Kindle app onto my Nook and it works really well. I do have a little problem downloaded books from Amazon but no trouble at all when I go directly to the Kindle Store.
