    Use Calibre to convert the mobi files into ePub files then load them into iBooks

    Another vote for Calibre, it`s an excellent way to transfer pretty much any ebook file to the iPad (auto-converts before transferring it to iBooks).

    kindle app for mobi. just move it in through itunes (go to app on your ipad, scroll down, and click on the kindle app).
