Convert doc/pdf files to Kindle (or other e-book) format

With so many downloadable books there (Google Books, Amazon, Project Gutenberg, to name a few), you need to be able to convert between formats. Here are few free programs that do just that:

  • Calibre is a free application which allows you to manage your ebook collection. It supports the conversion of many input formats to many output formats. It can convert every input format in the following list, to every output format. Input Formats: CBZ, CBR, CBC, CHM, EPUB, FB2, HTML, LIT, LRF, MOBI, ODT, PDF, PRC**, PDB, PML, RB, RTF, SNB, TCR, TXT Output Formats: EPUB, FB2, OEB, LIT, LRF, MOBI, PDB, PML, RB, PDF, SNB, TCR, TXT. (** PRC is a generic format, calibre supports PRC files with TextRead and MOBIBook headers).

Calibre seems to be a better solution for converting between formats. Except, it does not convert doc to mobi (for Kindle). The mobi software is good for authoring directly, but Calibre’s more flexible.
