AZW eBook Format

AZW Converter

The AZW ebook format was created by Amazon to use with its Kindle ereaders. AZW is sometimes known as the Kindle File Format. The files can contain interactive contents pages and book navigation, as well as the main content of the book and basic graphics. Like the earlier MOBI files, AZW files are normally protected by digital rights management (DRM) technology. DRM is intended to stop users from copying and sharing whole books or sections with other users.

In 2011, Amazon introduced the newer AZW3 format which has more functionality than AZW. However, AZW files should still be readable on most newer Kindles, and you can also download the Kindle app for smartphones, tablets, PCs and Macs. Because it’s Amazon’s proprietary format, AZW files will not open with most other ereaders, but you may be able to open them with Calibre’s ebook software. AZW and AZW3 ebooks are available to purchase from the Amazon Kindle Store.

PDF Document Format

PDF Converter

PDF stands for ‘Portable Document Format’ file. It was developed by Adobe so people could share documents regardless of which device, operating system, or software they were using, while preserving the content and formatting. The format has evolved to allow for editing and interactive elements like electronic signatures or buttons. The PDF format is now a standard open format that isn’t just available under Adobe Acrobat. It is maintained by the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO).

PDF files aren’t typically created from scratch, but are usually converted, saved or ‘printed’ from other documents or images before sharing, publishing online or storing. They can be viewed on almost all devices. Creating a PDF can involve compressing a file, making it take up less storage space. You would typically create a PDF if you wanted to ensure document fidelity, to make it more secure, or to create a copy for storage.

AZW files can be converted to PDF using an ebook software like Calibre or by using file conversion software or websites like Zamzar. The online tool on Zamzar’s website is free for most users and there are just three steps – upload your AZW file, click to convert it to PDF and then download the PDF.

To export an AZW file using Amazon, so that you have it on your device to convert, you need to log into your account, find the book in your library, click on the ‘Actions’ button, and then select ‘Deliver to Default Device or Others’.

If you bought the Kindle AZW file from Amazon, you should be able to download it by logging into your account library. Then a quick way to convert it to PDF is to use a file conversion tool like Zamzar. Just upload one or more AZW files to the free tool on Zamzar’s website, click to convert them to PDF, and then download the PDF files. You can also install file conversion software or an ebook editor like Calibre on your device and use that, but by using a cloud-based tool like Zamzar you can convert files without installing anything new.

AZW files are designed for the Amazon Kindle, so if you want to read one on another device, you will probably need to convert it to another format. It’s easy to do this using file conversion software or an online tool like Zamzar. Just upload an AZW file to the free tool on Zamzar’s website, select another format like PDF, EPUB or MOBI, and then click to convert it, before downloading the converted file. You can then read this converted file using your preferred ereader. Alternatively, you can also use Calibre or a similar ebook software to open your AZW files for reading.

One of the quickest ways to convert an AZW file is to use an online file conversion tool like Zamzar. As Zamzar’s tool is cloud-based, you don’t need to install any extra software and it’s free for most users. Just upload an AZW file, select another format like PDF, EPUB or MOBI, and then click ‘Convert Now’. You can then download your new copy of the file. It’s also possible to install an ebook management app like Calibre, which you can then use to manage and convert ebooks like AZW files.

AZW files will normally only open on Kindles or with the Kindle app, so if you don’t have access to these you would need to convert your file to another format that you can open on your device. Zamzar’s free three-step conversion tool is an easy way to convert from AZW to another format like PDF. Simply upload one or more AZW files, select the format to convert them to, and then download the new files.

Another way is to install an ebook management software like Calibre on your device, and then use this to open the file.
