"How to I get kindle books on my Nexus 7? - I am trying to find out how to install some of my text books from amazon to my Nexus 7 but am having problems. The books I am trying to get aren't supported by amazon because they only allow Kindle, Ipad, pc, or mac downloads for the book. I am wondering if maybe I just download for PC and move it to my tab it will show somehow. I am pretty noobish when it come to messing around with these devices. My tab isn't rooted yet but if its necessary to root to get these books I will. I am just hesitant to try to experiment because the cheapest of my books is 110 bucks."
