I typically only sideload epubs to my Kindle Fire HDX through Dropbox. That way I have sync between my phone and the Fire when reading the same book between the two when using Moon+ Reader.

I have the Go Launcher installed, so I can get a (sorta) native Android feel and switch back to the Kindle Carousel when I'm reading an Amazon bought book or watching a movie/TV Show from Amazon.

I experimented with dropbox, with mixed results. First, I had to sideload the dropbox app, that is something else which amazon see as a competitor I guess.

Then if I have, say, the free alkido epub reader installed on KF ( as well as the kobo app) I can tap on an epub file in dropbox & it auto downloads ( onto an alkido bookshelf - but I can import into Kobo from there)

but it seems I cannot directly associate the Kobo app with the epub file type. so for now I am leaving this superfluous extra reader installed just to make dropbox work better. If I remove that extra reader then dropbox complains that is does not know how to handle an epub & it takes several more taps to achieve a download :-(

it means that each book will be stored twice but I can live with that for now, for ease of operation. actually I am not sure about the twice think - when you import into Kobo it offers to delete the original file from the "sd card" but whether it can do that to another apps bookshelf needs testing.
