How to Convert Mobi to Kindle

If you previously used Mobi Reader and have purchased an Amazon Kindle, you might have many books in the .MOBI format that you want to convert to your Kindle. Although some people might try to sell you a conversion program, you do not need to convert .MOBI files to read them on the Kindle. Amazon now owns Mobi and the Kindle uses a file format derived from .MOBI. Books in .MOBI format will look the same on the Kindle as books downloaded from Amazon, so you just need to get your .MOBI books on your Kindle.

Step

Press the "Menu" button on your Kindle then press "Next Page." Under "Device Email," you will see the specific email address for your Kindle. You need the username, which is the part of the address before the "@" symbol.

Step

Open your email client or service and create a new message.

Step

Type "@free.kindle.com" replace "" with the actual username from Step 1.

Step

Attach a .MOBI file to the email message and send the message. Amazon will send the .MOBI file to your Kindle for free.
