There appears to be sites that let you "download" the apk ...but they all look VERY questionable!!! I have no desire to "steal" the reader ...but where can I buy it ?!?!?
There are reputable places to obtain apps for your KF. 1Mobile is one choice. Under device/settings, change "Allow Installation of Applications from Unknown Sources" to on/yes. Install 1Mobile app store. Install desired app(s).

I used the details given in the link here https://eweforia.wordpress.com/2013/...ndroid-device/

which tells you how to access Google Play apps without hacking or jailbreaking your KFHD. Worked fine for me, though it is a little bit l;ong winded getting it set up for the first time. Great though, as I now have access to many previously unavailable apps, including Snapchat.

Is it still possible to sideload google apps onto Kindle Fire? I tried a few methods suggested on the web but none worked.

Rooted or un-rooted? Haven't tried this myself, but it's worked for some...

The proposed solution is for Fire HD and HDX. Has anyone tried it for Kindle Fire?

For a first gen Fire you'll probably have to dig through old posts at Sourceforge to find the methods people were using.
