The Kindle Fire can read ebooks that are in any of the following formats:
The Kindle Fire cannot read epub files.
Any books you transfer over to your Kindle Fire have to be free of digital rights management (DRM) software.
You can email books and other documents (like Excel spreadsheets and images) directly to your tablet. Each Kindle Fire has a unique email address, which you can customize on the Manage Your Kindle page at Amazon.
FIRST you will need to add email addresses to your account that are allowed to email your Kindle Fire. This prevents SPAM from being sent to your Kindle Fire, which of course is a good thing.
For more details see Amazon's Kindle Personal Documents Service page.

Since the summer our TV broke when I was a kid and I started riding my bike to the local library, I've become a bit of a book addict.
I love reading actual books, so at first I wasn't sure if I'd like reading books on my Kindle Fire, but now I LOVE how easy it is to cart around 100's of books with me wherever I go! Especially when we go out of town.
I no longer have to pack a couple of books, CD's, puzzle books, and other games to keep us entertained. Now we just take our Kindle Fires with us.
I'm also able to type up notes while proofreading my mom's current manuscript, wherever I'm at. All I have to do is email the document to my Kindle Fire and it's instantly converted for me! How cool is that?
I love the ease and convenience of Kindle Fire books. It's so sweet!
