Calibre

This free application is basically an iTunes for ebooks, but without a store connected to it. You can use it to keep all of your ebooks organized in one directory, by author name, and maintain multiple formats for each title. You can also edit metadata for each book, change the cover art, and create custom tags so that you can sort your collection any way you like.

There are lots of other features with Calibre–check out the demo section of the Calibre website for more info.

Originally I suggested that you try using Stanza Desktop or Mobipocket Creator to convert books. You can still try those, but they’re not as good as Calibre when it comes to ebook management and conversion. My advice is to give Calibre a try first.
