I have Kindle on my iMac and I cannot find the files for each of my books.

I understand they should be under Documents/My Kindle Content but they are not there.

I can read my my books, no problem but I still like to know where the files are for each book.

(Why? Because I want to run a converter on the files to make them pdf's)

Action taken:

Deleted and reinstalled Kindle, but still cannot locate book files.

Please assist. Thanks.

Are you sure they are not there? They are not named based on the name of the book but an Amazon naming convention that would appear to be random letters and numbers.

EDIT:

On the newest K4Mac version, you can go to Kindle->Preferences->General and view/change your content folder. That should tell you where the files are currently.

Otherwise, find the ASIN number (from Amazon's website) for one of the ebooks you've purchased, and search for a file that is named like: "<ASIN NUMBER>_EBOK.prc" or "<ASIN NUMBER>_EBOK.azw"

For example, the file name for Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy would be: B003XT60E0_EBOK.prc or B003XT60E0_EBOK.azw.
