How to Make a Document for the Kindle There are limited file formats for documents that are readable on a Kindle. The Amazon Kindle requires document files that are in the Mobipocket (MOBI), plain text (.txt), Topaz (TPZ) and Amazon's own format (AZW). Under the AZW format, the Kindle document file has digital rights management (DRM) restrictions. The easiest way to make a document for the Kindle is to convert an existing document to the Kindle format with HTML coding. You can do the HTML coding yourself or use a program like Mobipocket Creator. Step 1 Open your web browser and go to the Mobipocket eBook Creator website (in Resources). Click "Download" to download the eBook creator. Step 2 Click "Run" and click "Next" on the Setup Wizard welcome screen. Click "I Agree" on the license agreement page and click "Next" to install the program to your desktop. Step 3 Click on "Mobipocket Creator" to launch the program. Under "Import from Existing File," select "MS Word document," "Text document" or "Adobe PDF." Step 4 Click "Browse" in the Import Wizard, select the file and click "Import." The file will be created as a publication file in HTML format. Step 5 Fill in the eBook information, including cover image, table of contents and book settings. Now your eBook is ready to upload to Kindle.
