Fixed Layout epub to amazon kindle format

I have a fixed layout book in Indesign that I want to publish as an ebook on amazon. I need to export it as a fixed layout epbub and then amazon converts it to their format. It looks fine in indesign and when I export and view on my ipad as an epub, it looks fine, but something in the conversion to kindle format is screwing everything up. [more inside]

How do I annotate epub's in a portable way?

I prefer to work with electronic academic texts in PDFs since I can annotate them in a portable way and easily store them in Zotero. I have a few texts, however, that I only have access to as epub's. What's the best way to annotate them so that I can return to those annotations at any point and search them in Zotero? [more inside]

Fill my tablet: ebook edition

Because my family is wonderful and great at picking up hints, I got a Nexus 7 for Christmas. I want to fill it with books to read, since this was a huge part of the reason I wanted a tablet. I've already looked through (and pulled into the tablet) the top books on Project Gutenberg, the Baen free library and the Baen CD library; now I want to find the hidden gems and start buying books.

Please explain like you are talking to a 3rd grader

I have a kindle and a kobo. I am trying to switch permanently from my kindle to my kobo which I will make my new ereader because it has many other options as well ( the tablet offerings). I have downloaded the epub mobi,az, etc. converter and epub master. I need to remove the kindle DRM to be able to move the kindle books to the kobo. Everything I read makes it seem so straightforward yet, there must be one thing I am missing. I have searched mefi for answers but am not finding anything that helps. Within my reading, it appears that using those programs you add the file and it converts it, super easy. Mine are not converting. [more inside]

Where can I buy the Practical Nomad eBook?

I'm looking to purchase The Practical Nomad as an e-book for my Kindle. It seems like it was previously available, but all the Amazon links are dead and I can't find any other e-book store where it can be purchased. I have a physical copy of the book already, but would like an e-book to travel with.

So THIS is that nasty DRM thing they talk about...

So, I have an ebook in the epub format. I want to read it on a device that is not the one I downloaded it to. Calibre informs me that this book is locked by DRM. I still want to read it on this device, and I don't want to buy the book twice - how do I make it so? [more inside]

It's on the web, but I want it in my pocket. Sort of as a book.

What's the best / easiest way to process / format material I've downloaded or copied from the web to read on Apple's Books app? On a Kindle? If I format for the Kindle, would the material be synced on both devices if I use the Kindle iPhone app as my reader? I've been using Calibre to rip ePubs, but there has to be an easier way than what I'm doing, which takes forever. [more inside]
