I also use Kindle Unlimited to 'borrow ' books. They have a lot of junk but a few good ones.

It is very frustrating to me that Amazon and overdrive Canada are not solving this problem. As a result I did the one time setup described How to Remove DRM on Kindle eBooks Using Calibre and then I borrow from my library, load the book in Calibre which strips the DRM and convert to mobi format and then upload using Amazon's sendtokindle app and it delivers wirelessly to my Kindle paper white. Once I've read it I delete it. It is a pain to setup initially but after you have it setup it takes three clicks to get any library book on my kindle (Open book in Calibre, right click and convert to mobi, select mobi file in windows explorer, righ click and select uploadtokindle) so it is very fast process.

Hi avidreader,

I followed the instructions you linked and it merely allows me to put my Kindle books onto the calibre. I still am not able to put any Library downloaded books onto Calibre. Any idea why?

Re the How to Remove DRM... That plugin works well most of the time but there is a new DRM scheme on some Kindle books that it does not handle. The KFX encryption. I have not attempted to follow this up.

Subway is enquiring about epub library downloads. Suggest he reads TorontoColin's response on Page 1. I'm not sure it can be done, except perhaps via a PC.
