2 Tools you need: Epubor Ultimate and Kindle desktop application.

Prepare: Use Older Version Kindle for PC/Mac to Download Kindle Titles

Why we need to downgrade the Kindle for PC/Mac to older version? This is because Amazon changes its DRM technology to recent Kindle books after the Kindle for PC/Mac version 1.25(and above) released and firmware 5.10.2(and above) released.

For now there is no better solution than downgrading Kindle desktop to older version.
