    Read amazon kindle books in standard TF Library

    Hey, i recently purchased a book from amazon and i was wondering if i could read the book in the standard TF book reader (my Library) because every time i click on the book in the library (in My Library on the home screen) it takes me to the amazon kindle reader and to be honest i think the kindle reader sucks in comparison... so is there any way i can read it in the inbuilt library or do i have to suffer the Amazon Kindle Reader?
    I am sorry if this has already crept up but after a while searching i couldn't find anything to answer my question.... On another note thanks for reading....

    Even though Amazon's kindle books are based on the mobi ebook format they are a proprietary format and file type. I don't know of any other ereader apps that will open kindle books. There may be some way to convert them to a supported format like mobi or epub but I am not aware of conversion software that will convert kindle files, as you have DRM to contend with. But that would be the place to start a google search, look for some way to convert your kindle books to a different format to use with a better reader rather than trying to find a different reader that opens kindle files.

    You can download Calibre for your PC and change mobi books to epub (or other formats if you wish)

    Calibre will only convert kindle AZW files if they are non-DRM. So may work for some books but probably not most.

    You can remove the drm from kindle and other formats from within calibre. There are plugins you can add into calibre that will do that. I have taken Kindle, Mobi and other formats and converted to spun.

    To find the plugins Smaugy referred to, google Apprentice Alf.

    Also, Calibre will not see the transformer because it only sees devices that Windows sees as drives. Windows sees the transformer as a phone. If you have a card inserted, Calibre will see that. Otherwise, you can save the book to your desktop and then use Windows Explorer to transfer it to your transformer.
