huge file after being converted

I have some pdf files that I converted using pdflrf to lrf which results in some huge files.

769 kb to 27,072
17,536 kb to 177,557

anyway to reduce this? I have a pdf over 200mb that I'm thinking of converting except... it'll probly be over 1 gb.

My sony reader 505 is in transit I should get it within 7 days. (couldn't wait. started dling ebooks. and converting.) sooo my question is; will the reader be able to handle a 27 mb file or even a 200 mb one?

does the files actually look better in lrf than in pdf?

is there a better conversion program? bookdesigner maybe?

That seems really, really big. Like it's converting the pages to images instead of text. (Which it might be, if it converts to HTML as a transition stage; some PDFs don't convert well.)

What are the original PDFs? Are they novels, or textbooks, or something else?
