Samsung Fasinate and Kindle App

A friend of mine has a Samsung Fasinate and I wanted to share some books with her that do not have drm on them. They are in mobi format. Is there a way for her to load the book onto her phone and use the kindle application to read them? If so how? Please be specific because she states she has tried everything to get it to load.
thanks

I can't be specific, but I have seen reports that all you need to do is sideload the MOBI ebooks into the kindle folder. This may require debug mode, or an android file manager, if this isn't on the sdcard.

An alternative would be to use FBReaderJ, it reads ebooks from the /sdcard/Books folder.

In order to sideload files to your Samsung Galaxy S (or, in the US, Fascinate, Captivate, Vibrant or Epic 4G) go to Options, and search for an option called USB Settings. It should be located in "About phone" for Éclair or "Connection settings" for Froyo. In this USB Settings menu you have an assortment of choices: Samsung Kies, Media Player, Mass storage unit... and you have to choose Mass Storage Unit. Once you've done so, you have to connect the phone to the computer, and mount it. The internal SDCard and the external one, in case it is present, will appear as... mass storage units, like USB sticks.
