To insert a product link use the format: [[ASIN:ASIN product-title]] (What's this?)

There's no such thing as used Kindle books as far as buying and selling goes. It's an unlimited digital file, with no possible justification for permitting reselling or buyback. Thus, you buy it, you keep it. You will be able to lend out certain titles that permit it for a short time, but you cannot buy, sell, or trade, Kindle titles that you buy. Thus why many stick to print copies, except for with keepers or deeply discounted/free titles. It's just not worth it being stuck with a title you can't get anything back on if it's not a keeper.

There are many programs that translate Kindle books in to other ebook forms, even to ascii text. Calibre is one. The real question is why Amazon says you "purchase" a Kindle book, when legally you only license the use of it under very strict conditions.
It may be that a court will someday rule that practice itself illegal and deny copyright protection of this draconian kind. Until then, you CAN sell, rent, lend, or donate Kindle books -- but Amazon COULD also make trouble for you if you do.

Okay, I amend my statement, you can't do so LEGALLY. I didn't think I needed to put that little note on my comments, as I thought it was implied, but I guess not. Just because something CAN be done via some method, doesn't make it legal or in keeping with copyright laws or terms & conditions of use. Actually, selling or giving away such books would be a crappy thing to do, as the buyer/receiver could be in just as much hot water as the seller/giver, even if they didn't know. Seems rather selfish to me.
