Just wondering whether anyone purchases songbooks/scores on Kindle from Amazon?

If so, is there a way to convert them to PDF so that I can use them with the ForScore app? Or is there at least a way to print them?

Although I can read them in my iPad using the Kindle app, I like using a Bluetooth foot pedal to turn pages. But the Kindle app doesn't support this, while ForScore does.

Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

I haven't bought any sheet music in kindle format (only normal books), but check out the calibre ebook management software (for PC). It can convert between various ebook formats and I think it can also convert to PDF - although I don't know how good the results are, especially with music scores instead of text...

Kindle songbooks and sheet music have been a big disappointment. ... wait did I say 'big'? I meant to say a HUGE disappointment. The Kindle format is broken when it comes to music. It handles scores as a graphic that scrolls, zooms, and page turns in the most annoying and irritating way possible for anyone trying to play an instrument at the same time. And no you can't transfer them to ForScore or any other PDF reader.

The best you can do is to look for a special Kindle format called a [PRINT REPLICA] which is a basically a PDF wrapped in the Kindle file format, but without all the useful features in ForScore. And once again, you can't transfer this to ForScore or any other PDF reader.
The question is, am I making music or just playing a bunch of notes?
