    I have my Kindle reader on my MacPro. Does anyone know if or how I can convert my PDF files to show up on my Kindle app to read on my Mac. Thanks so much!

    I believe that the Kindle app utilizes it's own format. If you want to read PDFs use Preview.

    Or you can install Adobe's PDF Reader on Mac as well. (for me it has better support for forms)

    Why bother converting for the Mac Kindle app? (just curious)

    You can use calibre to convert it (you'd want .mobi format), though you don't need to as the Kindle Mac app supports PDF files natively. Just right-click on it and select 'Open with Kindle.'
