I discovered that there is a way to do this without a charge (I can mail a .txt or .html file [other formats, too] to a email@example.com address. The Mother Ship converts the file to .amz format and sends it back to me).
I didn't RTFM closely enough to discover this right away (RTFM is the technical support term for "Read The F* Manual"). So ... I remain impressed by this device. There are a couple of little ergonomic features I'd change, but overall, I like it a lot.
I got a Kindle for Christmas and have been fiddling with it. My ebooks aren't in the Kindle library (which just means my publishers haven't converted their books to .amz format, for Kindle). BUT -- I can upload the books easily enough to the device.

Thanks to those who have 'befriended' me. I am still figuring out my way around this space, and hope to jump in and participate a bit more as time goes on. I'm just getting going on my next WIP, so coming over here and dabbling is a nice distraction ... as long as I don't let it get out of hand!
