For copying files to and from my PC (including Kindle books), I use an app called 
WIFI FTP Server.  It starts up an FTP server on your phone that you can connect to 
with Filezilla (or whatever) from your PC.  The server is only active while the app 
is running and you can set a password.  FTP is not a particularly secure protocol, 
but since I only used it when I'm on my home WIFI, it's not much of a risk.  It lets 
me move files around without worrying about cables, drivers, USB modes, etc.
