Calibre Anyone?

Every heard of a free app called Calibre.

I personally, don't have an e reader and actually like holding a book in my hands,
but for those of you who think you are stuck with one company's catalog , might have an alternative.

A free app called Calibre will convert any ebook into another ebook format.
One glitch, however. Evidentally it can't convert copyrighted books and doesn't even try. And copyrighted books are mostly what we all want to read.

Sooooo, it's not a solution but an alternative.
