Just wanted to know if it's possible to pull your own book file from your Kindle and then convert it back to Word or some other editable format?
The reason I'm asking is that they recently broke into our offices and stole all our PCs. My latest updated version of the novel was on my office PC with a slightly older version on my home PC. Can't remember all the changes I've made between the two files. Stupid, I know, but such is life.
So I'd basically like the current version on Amazon in a format that I could edit (or copy/paste from at least) in case I need to make alterations sometime.
Hmmmmmm... so if it's DRM-enabled, I'm royally
Why don't you just download the html from the KDP? Or...[i]how [/i]did you upload the original book? if it's your book, it's not DRM'ed to YOU, at least, not from the KDP. If you're BUYING it off of Amazon, well, then, yes, you're hosed.

That is what I would do. There is a teeny tiny link at the top of the online previewer that allows you to DL the HTML then you can open it in a browser and copy/paste into a word document. And, then, as they say, Bob's yer uncle.
You know, I once highlighted about twenty pages of stuff from a Kindle book, emailed the highlights to myself (or whatever it is that one does), and pasted the material into my word processing program. Every so much easier than keying it in or taking notes!
Is there any reason one couldn't highlight an entire book?
