The file extension MOBI is associated with files that store eBooks for reading and distributing.
The file extension MOBI is short for "Mobipocket," a company that creates software to create, store and read eBooks.
EBooks are "electronic books" that are essentially digital versions of books. They can be read by various electronic devices.
Adding DRM (digital rights management) protection to MOBI files is optional.
