Until yesterday I used MobiPocket 6.2 to check my mobi files on my Windows PC before uploading them to my Kindle. Today however MobiPocket keeps crashing when starting the app. I already re-installed it and rebooted my XP PC, but no avail. Are there other mobi readers for PC?

Thanks. I wasn't aware of the Amazon reader, guess I should have been. I'll try that one. – stevenvh Nov 22 '11 at 9:40
I really like calibre for this, since it runs on most OSes, and does conversions between formats - useful when you have some old palm formatted book ;p – Journeyman Geek Nov 22 '11 at 9:50
I downloaded the Kindle reader for PC and don't see any way to import and read a .mobi file. – LamonteCristo Jul 18 '13 at 13:31
No need to "import" or open it... double clicking works fine with the kindle reader:) – LamonteCristo Jul 18 '13 at 13:34

I have tried PDB, Mobi, EPUB, Djvu with Sumatra PDF. Its simple, starts fast.

Official description: Sumatra PDF is a free PDF, eBook (ePub, Mobi), XPS, DjVu, CHM, Comic Book (CBZ and CBR) reader for Windows.

Sumatra PDF is powerful, small, portable and starts up very fast.

Simplicity of the user interface has a high priority.
