Make PDF's more Readable in Kindle 2i?

How do I make my PDF's easier to read (bigger font) without having to scroll from left-right (readable--like an Amazon file is readable)? How do I optimize reading quality?

I don't mean to be snarky - but the answer is to stop reading pdfs on screens that are smaller than a piece of paper. Pdfs just aren't designed for e-readers - they're designed to be printed on a piece of paper. The text of a pdf won't flow, and if you make the text big enough to read, it's off the edge of a small screen. If you struggle hard enough, you can OCR the text, then proof it, then fix up the formatting, and after all that work, you have an e-book, not a pdf.
