I have some DRM-free books that I purchased before acquiring my Kindle Fire. When I sideload them on to the device, they end up under the Documents menu instead of in with the other books.

How can I get them to go in the right spot in the device's UI?

Using the Calibre program, you can clear the [pdoc] tag from the mobi file.

Remove the tag from this textbox, and convert (back) to .mobi.

Finish by sideloading the converted files via USB or Dropbox.
