=== Liberate from Amazon === If you really can't find the book anywhere, check if there is a digital edition available for sale on Amazon. If there is, simply download and install the free Kindle application for your operating system. Then purchase the digital edition from Amazon. It should download into your Kindle application. Now close the Kindle application and download and install [http://calibre-ebook.com/ Calibre] (the free and open ebook management and reading application)/. Follow [http://www.linux-magazine.com/Online/Blogs/Productivity-Sauce/Scrub-DRM-off-Kindle-Ebooks-with-Calibre this guide] to install the the DeDRM plugin for Calibre. This plugin will allow you to remove Digital Restrictions Management from the book you bought from Amazon. Now open the book you bought from Amazon. You may have to search for the file for the book to figure out where the Kindle application saved it. Once it is in Calibre, use the DeDRM plugin to remove the DRM. Make a copy of the book with the DRM stripped somewhere safe just in case. Now you can return the digital book to Amazon for a full refund. You may have to do a bit of searching to actually find out how to do this, but it _is_ possible. Once it is returned you have your free ebook that you can share with your friends without restrictions! Hurry up and put it on your favorite torrent site! It almost goes without saying that you don't want to do this too often from the same Amazon account.
