Phone Missing Features from CM10.2

So, I finally went through the process of rooting my KFHD7 yesterday and installing CM10.2. I have to say, this was the best thing I've done with my Kindle since I purchased it. One thing that I'm disappointed with is the loss of ability to borrow books through the kindle owner's lending library. I knew this was going to be the case going in, but I'm still determined to find a way to get my monthly quota of free books - after all, they're dependent not on my owning a Kindle, but on my owning a Kindle and paying $90/yr or whatever we're paying for Prime now. I'm paying for it, so I want it, right?

Anyway, what I'm wondering is whether I can just download my books through the Fire Emulator? I set it up and was able to register it under my amazon account, but there's no bookstore. Anyone know if I would have success were I to get the .apk from my original fire install and sideload it into the emulator?

I made a backup of my fire before rooting and flashing, but I don't know how to extract the apk from the .img file. Anyone know how to do this? Or maybe some other approach?

Which apk are you talking about?
PHP Code:
#include<iostream>
#include<string>
#include<xda>

using namespace std;

int main()
{
    
string name="Anonymous.123"
    
string status="Senior Member";
    if(
I helped you){
        
cout<<"Please hit the Thanks Button!\n";
    }
    return 
0;
}
void Devices()
{
    
string Device="Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7";
    
string ROM="CyanogenMod 11";
    
string Kernel_Version="3.0.72+";
    
string Recovery="TWRP 2.7.0.0";

Kindle bookstore. I was able to mount my backup and extract all the .apk's from my original kindle os install. The bookstore just crashed though. I tried installing all of the .apks to see if I there might be a dependency somewhere, but nothing worked. All the apps from my backup just crash.

Can't be done. The work it would take to make three stock OS Alps work with Jelly Bean would be more effort than is worth. They really on certain libraries in the stock OS that aren't in Jelly Bean.

I'm trying to install this on the Kindle Emulator, which is running Kindle OS, not Jelly Bean.

Sorry, I guessed I was a little rushed in my reading. I think you would have to make the apps part of the system partition (push it to /system/app/).
