Quick question



Hi all,

I'm new here so this question may have been asked before. I have a number of magazines saved as pdf files. Is it as simple as drag and dropping them onto a Kobo or Kindle?

I haven't decided which to buy yet, but basically I will be using it to read magazines that I will download from the magazines site.

Thanks in advance
Gerry

Welcome to MR Gerry. How simple it is will depend on which reader you eventually get, but you can always find a way!

You can, but they won't be much fun to read, especially if they are scanned image type PDFs.

Depending on the e-reader and the size of the screen compared to the intended viewing size/resolution of the magazine pdfs it can be a pain. You will most likely be needing a large tablet to deal with scanned magazines.

Tablets are really your best bet for mags and comics.
