I have just been given a kindle touch , prior to this i had a bog standard e-reader , is it possible to transfer my books that i downloaded from kobo etc to my touch? or am i restricted to just ordering books via amazon? thanks
It depends whether (or not) the books have 'DRM', which is technology to explicitly prevent you from doing this.
RE: transfering books
If they do NOT have DRM, then you can use a piece of software called Calibre, which you download onto your PC, to convert them from '.epub' (for "other" readers) to '.mobi' (for Kindle).
(If they *do* have DRM, you can actually still do this, but it is not legal and it is a bit more difficult.)
