you don't have to. Just don't buy any books from Amazon, and turn off the syncing of where you are in the book.
90% of the books that I have are not purchased from Amazon (and are DRM free, before you trot that out). In my case, Amazon knows that I have most of them because I use the 'e-mail to device' option, which runs them through the Amazon servers, but you could just load them via USB.
