If it is moslty or all text you will have good results. See the numerous threads here for more info on the trials and tribulations of converting/reading PDF documents.
Just to spare any future confusion, the email you would use is username
@free.kindle.com. The regular username
@kindle.com address sends the converted files back to you wirelessly.
One downside to being outside of wireless range is that you can't get the free samples. Those are only sent via Whispernet. It's certainly easy to buy books but I did miss the samples last time I was out of the country.
