    I just went to the amazon store via the kindle app and downloaded a whole load of free books from there. It got me to set up where I wanted the books to be delivered (i.e. the phone!), and now whenever I get another book it gets automatically downloaded to the phone. Now, even if I request a book from my PC, I get the choice to synch it with my phone.

    ** Edit ** have just re-read your post and realised you mean books that you've already downloaded prior to getting the app. Sorry, can't help here.

    Hi
    Only Kindle books bought from Amazon work with the Kindle app. Use a general ebook reader to read other file types.
