Without going through a Computer?

No.

Chances are pretty good that the books you currently own are in ePub format - correct? The Kindle cannot read ePub files.

Where did you obtain the books you currently have for your Sony? If they are DRM locked, you will have to remove the DRM. Then you will need to convert the file from ePub to a format the Kindle can read, most likely .mobi or .azw

Calibre is an excellent tool for handling that.

You can't transfer between a Sony reader and a Kindle without a computer to do the conversion.

I am guessing that most of the books you have are EPUb and many are DRMed EPub. You are going to have to convert the non DRMed EPubs using something like Calibre and sideload the books using the USB cord. You will have to decide if you want to strip the DRM from the DRMed books. If you chose to do so, you will have to convert the stripped files to put them on your K3.
