Free online PDF converter
http://www.zamzar.com/ provides the ability to convert PDFs to various formats eg. doc, rtf, html. You simply upload your file and when the conversion is done (a few seconds later), a download location link is emailed to you for your converted file.
I tested this on a PDF and the converted doc looked very good. Before I convert the doc via book designer though, I need to reformat as follows:
Is there a tool that I can use for this purpose? I tried a word macro I found in this forum but all the text ran into a long stream i.e. all the paragraph separators got lost.
I will experiment with writing my own macros (will need to learn some VB). This might be a quick and cheap solution to reading PDF's on the Sony Reader with proper resizable text.

Unfortunately, this, along with all the other PDF-to-whatever converters, cannot handle PDF's that have been rasterized; i.e., they must have the text still intact. Your only real option with this type of PDF is to run OCR and hope for the best.
BTW I tried Zamzar and a couple others on some PDF's I have a little while back, best bet is to find a tool that makes the PDF work for your device. Thanks for the resource, I'm sure many can still benefit from it!
