Diesel ebookstore has some good deals, but I'm not sure which format to buy since I have a Kindle.  Has anyone successfully used them? 

The one time I bought a .mobi version of a book from their site, once I got it moved/copied to my Kindle, it said I couldn't read it on my Kindle b/c it was licensed to another user.    I tried contacting the company, but they just immediately auto-refunded my money instead of answering my question.

Help!

I typed Kindle in their support page search and this is what it said:

Can I read your eBooks on the Amazon "Kindle"?

In most cases, you will not be able to read our eBooks (or any other eBookstore's titles) on the Kindle.  Matter of fact, Amazon tethers their Kindle books to the Kindle and Kindle apps.  

However, you may load the non-DRM version of Mobipocket format to your Kindle. Also, the Kindle 2 can also render non-DRM Adobe PDFs.

Please try a free test eBook first.

Also, there is software available on the web that can render DRM versions of the Mobipocket format on the Kindle that we have been informed of.

Here is the link:

Thank you, Sheila M.!

Okay, here's a follow up question for folks - how can I read books I download from Diesel?  I have an iPad, a laptop, and an Android phone.  Are there apps I can use to read their books on these devices?

Thanks,
Humaira
