Amazon Kindle devices do not support ePub or other formats used by various other e-Book Readers and you can't read them on your Kindle Reader.

Instead, they only allow you to read certain types of e-Book Format on your device. I can see that many people wish to read their e-Books that have different format from Kindle e-Books which are :
  • Mobipocket eBook File (.prc/.mobi)
  • Kindle Mobipocket (.azw)
  • Kindle Topaz (.tpz/.azw1)
  • Kindle Print Replica (.azw4)
