It all seems to work fine, but the subsequent book on the Reader (PRS-500) is tiny, and I have to resize each page in turn.

Why doesn't the reader stick with the current size when turning the page? Or could it be something odd about the way I create PDFs?
Not sure what you're seeing on the Sony - a page with lots of white space around it or little white space but everything in a tiny font. Those instructions suggest an 8 or 9 point font to start with, but 11 or 12 is probably better. What I do is set e.g a 12 point font in Word, 1mm margins, set page size in Word to 9 x 12cm, and print pdf also to a page size of 9 x 12cm. Comes out OK with little wasted space and a readable font size. Can be previewed in the Sony Reader software and changed if necessary.
