I hope the next version of the software comes with "eliminate margins" option so that it will be easier to read the text.
No even setting to landscape and fit to width, the text is ridiculously small and it is not practical to read - I suppose I could use a magnifying glass too . I wish there was a way for me to manipulate the PDF files on my computer to make them so they could be practical to read on the Cybook. As it is now, the PDF option seems more like a marketing afterthought (yes, the Cybook can read PDF files) that is practically useless.

I hope the next firmware release makes this option more useful.
