Check the USB connection type setting on your (android) device. When
I set it to "file transfer" (on an android 12-beta device) I can see
my Kindle books. While I could open the files with LibreOffice they
are in a format that I didn't have a compatible viewer for on my
laptop. [My android device file viewer(s) wouldn't get me into the
Kindle data directory.]
