My Kindle has plenty of storage (32 GB.) so I am not too worried about running out of room, and in any case there is the PC for backup with terabytes  of storage space. I do not see any advantages to me for removing DRM other than as an intellectual exercise that frankly I am just too damned lazy to engage in. Comments, please.

If you ever want to read a book with another e-reader, having an epub version.   While it is unlikely that Amazon will decide that you shouldn’t have the books you paid for, it could.   (It already decided that you can’t give them to your heirs).
