Over the past two years, the Amazon Bookshelf has grown leaps and bounds into developing for itself one of the world’s largest digital libraries of commercially available books. The success of their bookshelf has been reflected off their Kindle devices that allow users to download books from their Amazon online accounts and import them into their readers via a format known as AZW (Amazon Whispernet). These AZW files as always come along with digitally signed certificates which make them completely write and read protected. What this essentially means is that each of the AzW files that a user downloads are not allowed be sharing or redistributing with others. This can be potentially disturbing news for those that need to find out how they can user their books to its complete potential.
