You're looking for a Kobo.

Calibre works well for importing your own content to a Kindle. There’s also an “e-mail to Kindle” feature that I’ve found to quite wonky.

Our family has five of these. Totally not locked down. I download 95% of my books from other sources. The H20 is awesome for reading in hot tubs.

Lol, have you read some of the other threads around here? Home "automation" threads, 3rd party credit score app services, genetic tracing services. People around here don't seems to care very much about what personal information they share with big brother. Reading list doesn't even register.

Rakuten currently has a 10% rebate offer on their site for their Ereaders...I think if I wasn't so immersed in the Amazon ecosystem I would start with Kobo. But with Calibre it's sort of moot if you are even a little technically savvy. .zdpz wrote: ↑ You're looking for a Kobo.
Kobo is like the android of eReaders vs kindle is the cheap apple of eReaders (except it's dirt cheap, but closed ecosystem like Apple)
Kobo you get a lot more freedom, a lot more ease, cheaper in the long run to own, super easy to borrow library books, and their Forma model is phenomenal if you don't get the Libra.
Both waterproof, with front lights, excellent screens...
I was an aimless soil 2 years ago, but thanks to RFD found my way to Kobo and have been thoroughly satisfied.
Of course kindle have their advantages as well: price, large Amazon library of books to buy, and....yea thats it. Jk I'm sure there's more too but I'll let a Kindle user chime in to prophetically describe their experience.

Yes it works. I download my ebooks and convert them to mobi. It opens in Kindle just fine.
