I have a Nexus 7 tablet and I have a bunch of books I bought from amazon. I was wondering if it was possible to store them on hard drive. Thanks.

Yes it definitely is and I highly recommend it. It makes a good backup copy for your Kindle-enabled devices and it will ensure you get to keep your books even if Amazon goes out of business or goes all fascist and starts remotely wiping books off of Kindles again (yes, that's actually happened).

On the Kindle (the actual Kindle device, not the app) you can just plug the device in and drag the files off like a thumb drive.

If that option isn't available to you on your Nexus, then all you have to do is sign in to the Amazon store and go to "Manage My Kindle".

Go down the list, and whatever book you want to download click the "re-deliver" button (you may have to click "Actions" first i don't remember." A screen will pop up asking you what device you want the book delivered to. Somewhere on that screen will be a link to just download the file straight to your computer instead of delivering it through whispernet.

Thanks for your question

1) Install Kindle Apps for PCs (Windows 7/8 or Mac)
2) Go to Manage Your Kindle, identify the book you want to save and click on Actions and select Deliver to my… And select the device you want to save the book on.
