Help for iPad Mini with pdf & html ebooks

Could anyone point me in the direction of a really good app to read ebooks in PDF format on a new iPad Mini. I also would appreciate any advice on reading ebooks in HTML format - I have tried HTML Books and Goodreader but in each case the print is way too tiny to read and I cannot figure out how to increase text size without it disappearing off the edge. What I really want is an app or apps which will work as well as iBooks does for epub format - am I reaching for the stars??? I have only had the iPad mini for a week but it is a match made in heaven to read epub and mobi books because of its light weight which does not make my arthritic fingers cramp and I love it. I suppose I can go to a huge amount of trouble and take all my books through Calibre for conversion to epub or mobi but I am talking about many hundreds of books in pdf and html format. Can anyone help please?? thanks Berni

AFAIK, iBooks can view PDF files. You can sync them to the Mini via iTunes but will show up in iBooks under the PDF collection of the Library button.

Yes, iBooks is pretty good at displaying pdf. For html I'm not sure what the best solution would be, maybe simply a web browser? iCab for iPad can open external files using the open in function, but I haven't tried it with a html file.

Calibre (freeware) can easily convert HTML docs into an ePub or mobi/KF8 so you can read them on any app that reads ePubs or Kindle books. If you convert them to ePub or mobi/KF8 you can highlight and bookmark them in many of the apps.

EDIT: PDF Reader Pro is really good, but it is a paid app. Adobe Reader is available for free, but I rarely used it so I cannot remember whether it is good or not.
