I'm just getting started with all this and a bit confused. I have a Dell laptop with Blio software. Can I download and read kindle e-books?
Blio does not support content from other readers, including Kindle ebooks, and vice versa. Most files have some sort of copyright protection and this can cause trouble when trying to open outside the normal app. Material with a copyright cannot be opened in Blio unless purchased through the Blio store. Content without DRM protection can be imported. Depending on the device, Epub, XPS, and PDF are acceptable file formats for import.
Yes, you can download the Kindle for PC software and also run Blio on the same PC.
