Why? Because it is much easier for me to manage a large amount of books in one library instead of different apps. That's one reason that why I highly recommend you to remove Kindle DRM and read Kindle eBooks with your favorite Reading apps.

Another reason is that reading Kindle books with Non-Kindle apps means I've already received the drm-free kindle books. Consequently, I can back up these books to my computer no matter what happens to Amazon or my Amazon account. It is sort of safeguarding my Kindle books.
