If it will read a pdf, you can always export as pdf (or use a 
pseudo-printer, which has some advantage) from within AOO.

My own reservation is that AIUI you have to email everything to Amazon 
for downloading to your kindle, which (a) is stoopid on sundry counts, 
and (b) gives them access to everything you read. OT I know, but while 
we're here, can anyone confirm/deny this please?

(PS. it's a good idea not to hijack a thread; it's also good to set the 
subject line appropriately for the content!)
