I would add that the mobi files that calibre makes are perfectly 
compatible with a Kindle, since I've put them on my Kindle directly by 
USB as well as emailing through amazon. In their great generosity, 
Amazon tells you that they will automatically convert whatever you email 
to your device to mobi format. They also reserve the right to charge you 
for that conversion.
