Yes I am a "plethora" - tell Betsy - I need an upgrade from Dr. Seuss !
One thing about conversion - sometimes the converter just makes an HTML file - then you have to use it again to get the mobi file. I sometimes use the converter - PLUS mobicreator - in a 2 step process - to get to the mobi file OR use mobi creator twice - if it first creates an HTML file. Only mobi will go on the Kindle (also azw; prc )
OR - you can use Mobipocket Reader ( see thread below ) http://www.mobipocket.com/en/DownloadSoft/Default.asp?Language=EN
Of course - you could e-mail the file to your kindle at amazon ( [email protected]dle.com )
if you don't want to do the conversion yourself.

Sorry if this has already been mentioned... I'm new. ;)

I use the free mobipocket reader to convert pretty much everything I've found.
You just import the file and it will perform the conversion to mobi for:
office docs
pdf
html
text
chm
epub

It's also a nice place to keep track of them all on you pc.
Unfortunately it too is only for windows, but you can download it here:
