Not really. First I have to configure calibre to remove DRM, which I 
admit is a one time task.

But then on a continuing basis I must download each book twice; first, 
and automatically, to the Kindle. Then I must selectively download it to 
the computer and then move it into calibre. That's a lot of work when I 
just want to go and read the book.
