Email or direct upload, I'd be singularly unhappy at being forced to 
send all my reading material via anyone like amazon. I can't see any 
reason at all why one shouldn't upload directly (over usb or whatever) 
something a kindle will handle. Makes me suspicious if they set up a 
system that forces an unnecessary dependency; sets my privacy-o-meter 
all atremble. (It's one reason I've shelved the idea of buying one.)

Can any confirm please whether this is indeed part of amazon's scheme, 
and whether others may be differently managed?

(This sub-thread is well OT for this list; if no-one actually knows the 
answer, I'll drop the subject.)
