Recent kindles can read PDF and ePub.  MOBI is restricted in that the
only commonly-available reader that can handle it is kindle.  Why limit
your audience like that?  ePub is common, un-restricted, and open. PDF
is even more so (though less flexible in re-flow and other formatting -
if that matters to you).
