Where does windows 8 store azw files?

I bought a kindle book from amazon. I can find the book in the kindle app in windows 8 but I can not find the actual .azw file on my computer. I've run a search and no luck. What am I doing wrong.

I too use Calibre and have Windows 8. The Kindle app for Win 8, I don't like. What I have done is just download the Kindle for PC the XP, Vista and Window 7 version. This way I get my 'Kindle Content' and can then move the files into Calibre. ;) It will download ALL your books if you tell it to Sync. The easiest way to avoid that is to go into kindle, keep the books in cloud, go to the list view most recent then click on that book. It will download it to the folder. The first time you do this will be more time consuming but after that it will be a breeze!  Hope this helps. :)
