Drag & Drop books

I was looking for a quick n' dirty method for getting books on my Nexus7, and came up with this. Hope it helps others.

I made a new folder in Nexus7> Internal Storage, named it Books and dumped a test .mobi file in there. I downloaded FBReader (free), and was surprised when that app gave me instant access to root files on my device..YAY! I navigated to my new Books folder, opened the .mobi file, and the app works perfectly.

Drag & drop seems to work for this device. I hope this issue has been solved for those of us with lots of books waiting to be loaded onto our new, shiny devices.
