How to Read ePub eBooks on Kindle/Paperwhite?
ePub is a great format for sharing books between different readers. However, Kindle, one of the most popular e-reader from Amazon, doesn't support it. The Kindle can only recognize four file formats: TXT, MOBI, AZW and PRC. That's why you have imported ePub eBooks to Kindle but only find that they are not readable.
Fortunately, there is an easy workaround for you: Converting ePub to Kindle format with Calibre, which is a free and open-source eBook manager and conversion tool allowing you to convert ePub to MOBI for Kindle. Below is how to use it:
