Talking Search the contents of all my .mobis?

I have several hundred unDRMed .mobi ebooks and I would like to search across the contents on Windows XP (and if possible, also Android 1.6 and 2.1).

For example, if I'm looking for the word "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" and assuming it is only in the content of the ebook (and not the title or metadata), I'd like something like grep. Only, grep won't work because not everything in .mobi is plaintext.

What's the best way to do this?

Sorry if this has already been asked but I searched the forums first and didn't find my question.
