Non-Kindle owner asked to help Kindle owner...?

I don't own a Kindle and have never used one. (I currently use the ebookwise 1150).

A colleague at work, today, told me she was getting a Kindle this Christmas. She's a complete non-techie and nervous about that side of things. She's confident about buying books from Amazon and them showing up via the wireless (I didn't know that worked in Canada yet).

Anyway, I was thinking of giving her a CD/DVD full of (copyright expired) books before the holidays began. My questions are:

1. What is the best format, to output from Calibre, for the Kindle?
2. Is there a step of VERY easy Windows-based directions I can give her on how to copy said files over via the USB?

I don't see her enough to be her tech, but want to give her a nice starting point for her new adventures in the electronic book world.

Thanks

David
