In my previous comments on the Fire I said that I couldn't load an ePub reader onto the Fire. I have since found out how it is done and have now "side-loaded" the Nook app onto the Fire which lets me shop in the B&N Nook store.

Here is how it is done:

More on "sideloading" Android apps to the Kindle Fire.

The Aldiko ereader is listed as being incompatile with the Fire on the Amazon app store but I just sideloaded it and it works fine. I just downloaded a couple of public domain books. I have read that the Kobo reader also works well.


How to Sideload Apps On The Kindle Fire


What is nice about the Fire is that Amazon has left a side door in the device. Under Device settings they have a button "Allow Installation of Applications from Unknown Sources." As a result there is really no "hacking" of the device involved or necessary. Pretty slick.
