Which format is better for Kindle EPUB or Mobi?
EPUB is a common ebook format around the web, but the Kindle can’t read it natively.
That’s okay; you can convert .epub files to Mobi files for the Kindle to read.
The key is a free piece of software called Calibre.
Calibre is available for Windows and Macs.

What is the difference between EPUB and Mobi?
Mobi files are the ebook files used exclusively by Amazon’s Kindle Store. The major difference between mobi files and EPUBs is that the Amazon format is protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM) which ‘locks’ the book so it can only be read on devices associated with your account.
Is EPUB or PDF better?
When it comes to ePub vs PDF, the major difference is the reading experience. The general consensus is that e-published books have the edge in readability. PDFs are essentially digital printed documents. It’s like having a piece of paper in your hand, except it’s on the screen (this has many advantages though!).
