(update) P.S. for info on how to read Mobi and Epub files on a PC check out this site, or do a search to find the appropriate information (I’m not endorsing the site or anything, just happened to find it and it led me to Borders site where I downloaded the conversion software – I didn’t even know who owned which type of file, so I had to educate myself).
