Right now, the best way is to de-DRM the kindle files & read them using pReader. Do a search with your favorite engine & you can find the scripts to remove the DRM and then go to the official pReader thread here for info or questions about using pReader: http://forums.precentral.net/webos-h...a-release.html

I'm also trying to put ebooks on the touchpad. So far looks like preader is the only program that works (not well) there has to be a better way. Anyone have any advice ?

If you're not able to follow the sideload directions, you might want to try the version of pReader in the App Catalog - it supports mobi & kindle files as long as they have been de-DRMed. To get the most out of pReader, you really need to read the Help & set Preferences how you prefer.
