One of my friends asked me to help him publish his book on Amazon. His book is in Pdf format but if I convert to mobi the double letters would be simple e.g. "full" would be "ful".
Will Amazon allow Pdf files or only mobi? I don't know the process. Thank you in advance for your help!

I presume you mean publishing at Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP). Here are the formats that KDP accepts:

Word (DOC or DOCX)
HTML (ZIP, HTM, or HTML)
MOBI (MOBI)
ePub (EPUB)
Rich Text Format (RTF)
Plain Text (TXT)
Adobe PDF (PDF)
Kindle Package Format (KPF)

The above list may change from time to time, so check out the current list at:

Also, KDP has an EpubCheck tool that validates EPUB files:

And here's a link to a simple, helpful guide for building a KDP book:

I wish your friend good luck with the book! Regards, Joe
