You may are looking for a solution to convert the format, but cannot find a satisfactory answer. Here are the useful ways to help you deal with your conversion problem.

Why we need to convert EPUB or Mobi files to PDF

For Mobi to PDF

Mobi is Amazon's unique eBook format, we can only read them on Kindle app or Kindle device. Currently, eReader on the market almost support PDF or EPUB files not Kindle format. Converting Mobi to PDF, we can:

1. Read Mobi files on more available devices support PDF files, such as Kobo, Nook, Sony eReader and iPad.
