Hello everyone!

I'm new proud owner of an sony reader. Ok I couldn't afford the iLiad from iRex.

I had stumbled upon this site in the past and now that I have my reader I decided to become a member. My eyes already hurt from reading the hacking post.

I look forward to talking with people here and learning some info on how to get the most out of my reader.

My question is where should I look on the forums for ways to fix ebooks that I have in pdf format that the text is so small and hard to read. I have a lot of design books that show code and it really is impossible to read it. I understand I'm probably SOL on ebooks that are simply image pdfs, but I have the same issue where the pdfs have editable text.

So if someone would tell me where to start, that would be great!!

Oh and I'm from Massachusetts.......forgot to mention that.

Welcome to MobileRead, FooF! Glad you decided to join us officially.

As a starting place for your PDF files, I'd suggest you take a look at Rasterfarian.

Taxachusetts, ahhh, memories of grad school and a second floor walk up in an 1890 built row house.

Welcome to MobileRead. NatCh has pointed you to the best program we know of for reformatting PDF files for the Reader. A lot of us have extracted the text from PDF files but then again, I don't have any design books to worry about.

Good luck and keep us posted as to your success converting them.
