Problem opening .mobi files

    .mobi files were opening fine in Google Play Books (default app) on my mobile. But I downloaded a .mobi file from a torrent and suddenly .mobi files don't open any more.

    When I tap on a .mobi file in File Manager, it just just shows a dialog showing Open As, with the options being Text, Image, Audio and Video. If I click on Text it shows a few apps but Google Play Books is not listed. And none of those apps can read the .mobi format.

    The .mobi files which I have already uploaded to Google Play Books open fine. It's just that if I click on the same .mobi files in File Manager the above stuff happens.

    Any ideas / suggestions on how to fix this? OS: Android Lollipop.
