WIn8 App and sideloading

So, now that the WIn8 Nook app says you can sideload books, anyone figure out how to do it?

 

I have found the button to open a file but I thought sideloading put the file into your library on that device and kept last page read and things like that. Opening a file just puts you at the begining again every tim eyou open it.

 

URL for announcement: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/u/nook-for-windows-8/379003757

It says sideloading under What's New over on the right.

 

I went into a chat with a support rep, but everytime they put the chat on hold and it auto-closes due to inactivity...

The app is pretty much useless for people who do most of the reading by sideloading content onto their nooks. Even after the update.

I suspect this is by design. B&N wants you to buy their content, so it makes sens that they would optimize for content downloaded from them.
