So a few things: there's some posts on the books forum about where to get books; I made a comment just recently in that thread about using IRC which takes a bit to set up but has most books I have looked for, and that's quite a few.

Secondly, stripping DRM will probably be the same as in all those old blog posts you've read, it's based on the software Calibre and a plugin for that.

Besides that I'm using linux and a kindle too, you can just plug it in via USB and there should be a 'documents' folder where you can put the books and they'll show up on the kindle.

Afaik if you do decide to buy from amazon you can still download directly, or at least you used to be able to.

Great! That's what I was hoping for.
