Book Test

I have a friend looking at getting an ereader for reading PDF scans of old church texts. I suggested he check out the eDge but he can't where he lives.
He said that this book (googlebooks) is pretty normal for what he wants to read. Could someone try it out and tell me how well it displays?

It looks exactly like on the website - full size, super clear, beautiful.

Attached is a slightly blurry photo taken using my (crappy) phone.

Note that this is a full-sized eDGe, not the smaller Pocket eDGe. If you're dealing with PDFs, I recommend the larger eDGe so that you can read the PDFs easily.

Actually I was surprised at how well I can read PDFs on the Pocket. Click Reflow first, then enlarge the text until it's comfortable. I haven't used this with books with charts yet though.

Reflow will not work on image PDFs. In those books which include tables, charts and/or graphics, reflow 'will' enlarge the text but not display the tables, charts and graphics.
