  •  But the Kindle is compatible with many file types (4+ / 0-)

    It depends a bit on the exact model, of course, but my old Kindle Keyboard can handle AZW (of course, that's Amazon's format), CBZ (comic book archive), DOC, HTML, MOBI (without DRM), PDF, TR3, and TXT. The lack of EPUB is well known and there are easy conversion programs to get EPUB into something the Kindle can handle.

    I am not required to shop at Amazon for ebooks. I can get them from individual publisher websites (Baen, for example.) I can get files for free from Gutenberg or through my library. I can buy them from other retailers as long as I can get a copy in one of those formats listed above.
