condense multible .mobi files to make one readable book on Kindle 2

Hello all I downloaded a html book which I converted to .mobi format. I have over 25 files (the chapters ) is there a way to condense all of these files to one file that the Kindle will read in order?

Thanks... I hope all is well on your side of the screen Happy reads

I answered this before they moved it so my answer got deleted.

Zip the files into a zipped folder and then use calibre to convert to a single book. Of course one of the files will have to contain links to the other files (like a table of contents) otherwise the conversion will be a mess. Alternatively I think you could send the zipped file to Amazon for conversion if you don't want to use calibre.

Another option is to use Mobi Creator. Simply add all your 25 HTML files to the book and then build it.
