The PDF/document size question is a good one, since it's even harder for the 6" screens to handle normal document sizes.

Fiction will work well in paperback size, I'm sure, but I'm a little concerned about technical books and game rule books (I want to put all my D&D and Warhammer rule books on my Reader). It seems like the PDFs will be practically unreadable at that small size.

Anyone have any tips for dealing with content like that for small screens? (Text that flows around illustrations, especially charts and tables, and just small text in general)
