    Perhaps a better way (and also an easy way) to get YOUR content into your Kindle app is to download "Send To Kindle".

    Amazon.com: Send to Kindle

    This installs a "context menu" (aka right click menu) option to send files to your Kindle account. It natively supports DRM-free .mobi (the format Kindle uses), .pdf, .prc, .txt, .doc, and a couple of others. It does not support .epub or .lit files, but Calibre can convert those into .mobi if they are DRM-free.

    You can select multiple files in Explorer, right-click, and "Send to Kindle" and they'll be uploaded in a batch. Once in your Kindle account, they're just like any other Kindle ebook; you can download them to all of your registered Kindle devices (PC, phone, tablet, Kindle), and WhisperSync will work. It's FAR better than just copying the files to your device manually, especially if you use multiple devices to read.

    I have a mac and had encountered issues transferring epub books, but ultimately it works pretty nicely, so here it is for anyone who is still lost:

    1. Downloaded and installed
    2. Plugged in my Nexus 7 and opened Android File Transfer from the Application section in my Mac
    3. I created a "epub Books" folder in the Android File Transfer window that opened (note: I tried creating a "Books" folder, but it kept error-ing out and I think it is because the Nexus already has a "Books" folder.
    4. Transfer my epub book from my Mac to the "epub Books" folder
    5. I had previously downloaded the FBReader FREE app on my Nexus, so I launched it on my Nexus
    6. From he FBReader screen I clicked on the "FBReader Library" icon at the top on the menu, righ-hand side and navigate to "File System">"File Tree">"Memory Card">"uPub Books" (note: I do not have the data capable nexus)
    7. I disconnected my Nexus
    8. I clicked on the epub book I wanted to read and clicked on the "Read" button

    Done, ready to read ePub books

    oh and the books are in epub format.

    Nevermind, I figured it out!
    If you have a cloud service like DropBox i recommend that you store them there, that's been the quickest and easiest way for me to transfer my eBooks across my devices.

    So long as you download it to your app via wifi there's no charge. Alternatively, you could email the converted file to your kindle email address. So long as you email it from the email you registered the kindle app with there's no issue. The kindle email is usually (a name unique to the device)@kindle.com, but if you send the file to it will only download over wifi and not incur any charges. Either way you end up with the file in your kindle cloud and you can download it to any kindle app or device free of charge after that.
