How to get my old kindle books on BBPB?

Hi, I sure hope someone can help me. My Kindle broke after I bought a new book from Amazon. I bought this playbook 2nd hand and know nothing! Not real computer savvy at all. I called Amazon and they told me I can download the blackberry version of Google play and be able to download anything from Google play and buy books from them again as well as read them on my new device. They said once I did that, my book would be transferred to my playbook once I signed into my Amazon account from my playbook. However, they told me that in order to get the Google playstore, I would have to go into applications or security settings and allow unknown sources in order to be able to download the app. When I finally found (which I can't find again) manage your applications, it said I didn't have any to manage? I went there again another time and it shows facebook on there? Not sure how that even got that there? Real stupid at computers. Hopefully somebody can help me.  Thanking you in advance.  Lynn Smith  :Helpsmilie:

They gave you instructions for BB10 OS latest version, you can't do that on Playbook, it doesn't use BB10 OS.

There is program called "Book Reader" for Playbook, get it on BBWorld. That program can open kindle format books, but you will need to manualy copy books to your Playbook.
