At least two ways to sideload mentioned here.
I recommend the google browser extension as it doesn't need all that java rte stuff.

I recommend the Good EReader site and the method they suggest.
Yes IF you have windows Vista or newer. Others (mac, linux, googlebooks) must use the chrome method, which also works across wifi so people with pcs that refuse to connect by usb, or with busted usb sockets, or folk with xp home or 2000 may prefer the Chrome method.

Thanks everyone! The eReader works for me, although some apps don't work...I assume it's because they haven't been updated to the ne Playbook OS. This opens up so many more apps!
