How to Convert AZW3 to EPUB
Posted by Jonny Greenwood on 3/21/2014 6:42:55 PM.
To start this guide how to convert AZW3 to EPUB, for good understanding I would
settle it with several parts including what's azw3 file, why we have to convert
azw3 to epub, how to, etc. So it would be better to read them step by step.
Of course if you had get a good knowledge about the AZW3 format, you can pass
those parts of the supplementary instructions and go straight to how to convert
azw3 to epub.
Part 1: What is AZW3
If you were Kindle ebook's loyal fans, you won't feel strange to the AZW3 format.
And there are also a large number of people prefer to call AZW3 as KF8 (Kindle
Format 8). At the beginning AZW3 was just used on Kindle
Fire only, and many people don't take special attention to it.
But, I didn't know exactly when, the AZW3 format
expanded to Kindle Paperwhite and be widely used on the
E-Ink eReader. What's more, if you synced your books with
Kindle for PC/Mac, some of them would be turned to .azw3
file from .azw after the DRM removed. This is a very
interesting phenomenon, yes?
Perhaps we can even predict that AZW3 format would play
a big role on Kindle ebook world in the near future. But as
the saying goes every coin has two sides, we may usually
meet some obstacles to read kindle azw3 books, too. This is what I want to say in
Part 2: Why we convert azw3 file to epub
As I have written at part 1, AZW3 file is well supported on Kindle Paperwhite. But,
on computer or other tablets and smart phones, how to open an azw3 file? The
common way is using the free Kindle reading apps.
However, tha fact we couldn't escape is, on non-Kindle devices, such as Kobo,
Sony, Nook, Nexus 7, iPad, and so on, books we read are not only from Kindle
store but also from another ebookstore. So we prefer to the built-in or another
third-party reading apps rather than Kindle app.
Though maybe there are still a part of people love Kindle app, but as this app
only support kindle ebooks, so if we want to read Apple books, we need iBooks
app; if we want to read kobo books, we need Kobo app...Oh my god, our devices
may become too "fat" to run smoothly.
But, we can't open and read AZW3 format ebooks
directly without Kindle app. The reasons are as below.
DRM problem: most of the books we downloaded on
Kindle Paperwhite are protected with Kindle DRM, which
prevent us coping, transfering, and sharing kindle ebooks.
Format problem: most of the third-party reading apps
on non-Kindle devices only support the EPUB and PDF
format, not the AZW3.
So here comes the need of converting azw3 to epub and pdf.
How to Convert AZW3 to EPUB

problems above. It can not only convert azw3 to epub drm, but also convert azw3

KSN? Don't worry the window the pictures showed has told you the steps.
Then the decryption will start. All selected azw3 books are drm-free.
If you can see your azw3 files are listed on the right area of this soft, it says your
