    Highlighting and Notes for Google Books

    I have downloaded a few books from Android Market and have not found a way to highlight text or make notes like on the Kindle. So I downloaded the Kindle reader and used Calibre on my PC to convert my google books to .mobi (Kindle format) then transfered the file into the Kindle directory on my Xoom. The Kindle app will not see the converted file for some reason.

    Here is my question... Has anyone found a way to highlight text and place notes in their google books on the Xoom? Thanks!

    Look under "All items" on your Kindle app for your side-loaded mobi files. They should be there. They are on mine!

    I've tried converting a number of books and putting them in the Kindle directory but "All Items" does not recognize them. I'm really scratching my head on this one...

    Although the selection of Google books is slimmer, I would rather use that over something like the Nook app.

    I too really need to be able to highlight, make notes and potentially bookmark pages. I'm willing to use Nook or Google Books. Anyone with any suggestions?
