book converted to mobi takes 5 minutes to open

I have an ebook that I converted to mobi that takes about 5 minutes to open on my PC(there is no problem opening it on the kindle). The epub opens almost instantaneously on my PC.

The book is here:
http://library.mises.org/books/Henry...20Hazlitt.epub

Thanks in advance,

dG

Dont open MOBIs with the calibre viewer. They are always going to be slow. Use EPUB or AZW3.

Darwinsgate,

Since you have a Kindle, you're probably familiar with "Kindle for PC", but in case you're not:

It's free and it's fast. It opened the Hazlitt MOBI (over 4MB) in about 3 seconds.
