Are the books from the Toshiba in Kindle format? If so, register the Fire to the same account as the Amazon books on the Toshiba were bought on, then they will be available in the cloud (archived items list) on the Fire. The non-Amazon books, if they are compatible with the Kindle app on the Fire, can be copied across using a USB cable connection - as long as they **don't** have file protection (DRM) on them. What format are the non-Amazon book files?

Edit to add the "don't" in the final sentence. Oops.

I don't mean to be disrespectful (hey, kudos to you for answering!) but I think you mean so long as they *don't have DRM on them?

Thanks, John.

@M. Ratcheson: Thanks so much for letting me know about that giant OOPS. I've edited my post to show it correctly now.
