"mobi" is the original version of Kindle format. You shouldn't need to reencode anything to load ebooks from Baen on a Kindle.

Arguably they should reorder the names in the download link "Mobi/Palm/Kindle Format" puts the format first, but has issues with people not reading the entire thing before giving up. OTOH right below "Read Online" is "Email Kindle Ebook to me"; and if you dig into your amazon settings you can get an address that will let you email them directly to your device instead of having to USB them over.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
