I am hoping/wondering if I would be able to change formats of the ebooks that I have to the Kindle one.
The "native" Kindle format is actually .azw which is Amazon's version of .mobi. (Amazon owns Mobipocket, which developed the .mobi format.) I read somewhere, probably on MobileRead, that .azw, .mobi, and .prc files are identical and the only difference is the suffix.
