They're probably in epub, which the Fire doesn't natively support.

If they are epub, you can install one of the apps that will allow you to read them. I mostly use Aldiko for epubs. Are they epubs?

Aldiko isn't available from the Amazon Android App Store, but you can sideload it from another site. For instructions, Google "How to sideload android apps to a Kindle Fire."

ETA, you need to enable the ability to add apps from sources other than the Amazon app store. To do this, click on the gear icon, click on More, click on Device, and under "allow installation of applications from unknown sources" click Yes.

Bart,

as mentioned earlier.... You have to sideload the application. A simple google search will give you plenty of sites with step by steps procedure.

@bart plaster

You can use any of the following three applications to read ePub on the Kindle Fire.
First go to 1mobile.com and install the 1 Mobile Market App.

Then just search for "at 1mobile":

Aldiko Reader

Cool Reader

Mantano Reader

With the 1 Mobile Market App. any application that you chose at 1mobile.com will download and install just like from the Amazon Apps for Android Store. No sideloading involved.

Ok i got it installed and i try to slide my ebooks over in the ebooks folder and nothing is there . Is there another folder i need to put it under.

@bart plaster

I am not sure if this was covered or not, but Aldiko, Cool and Mantano Readers, do not read Kindle Format books.

They will read "open" ePub format books like you get from project gutenberg, and like sites.

I put all of my books in the Books folder, and my Doc's and PDF files in my Documents Folder.
