I am seriously considering a Sony Reader, but I have a question on how it works that I was hoping someone who has one could answer.
Assuming I was custom generating a PDF (or some other format file), is it possible to have an index page that you could use to quickly jump to desired pages? Can a PDF file have links inside the document that you can follow?
I am trying to figure out where a Sony Reader fits between a hard copy book and a regular computer. I have only been able to look at the Reader in the box at the local Borders, so I am not certain how interactive it can be.

Welcome to MobileRead, monkius!
The PDF format does support internal links, and if you're generating the files yourself, you'll probably be able to get a page and font size combination that'll work for you -- A4 PDF's just dont' work very well, as you might have read.
As for handling one, you might see if there's a Fry's or SonyStyle store near you that will have demos out. Try the Dealer Locator, if you haven't already.

A couple of hints to make this job easier:
1. Insert a hard page break before each "chapter" or section.
2. Insert a distinct character or set at the end of each chapter like "##". The search function in Connect is not whole word or case sensitive in its search so searching for "end" gets you "send" "append" etc.
Hope this helps.

I have some rather large PDF files that I tried to index. It worked with a few links but as the number of links increased, so did my page turn time. When I had all the links I wanted, the page turn rate was at 35 seconds per turn. I removed most of the links until I got back to the 1 second range.
So proceed with caution.
