Greetings! 

1) There exists a way to convert most Kindle books to html files, enabling
us to read them in braille and to have perfectly thorough navigation. The
process takes several steps, and some sighted collaboration will probably be
needed at least once. While most books convert, a few do not, so it may be
wise to grab the sample which is offered and test it before buying the book.
All necessary files and instructions are here:
