Newspaper that's *almost* readable on the Sony Reader

Over on the iLiad board, I read about the A4-sized version of the Telegraph in pdf format. It's pretty cool and free to download here...

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main...ws/pm/ixpm.xml

Trouble is, the body type on the Telegraph's downloadable pdfs is too small to make out on the Sony Reader. (It's close, but not quite there.)

Has anyone seen a designed newspaper that is truly readable on the Reader?

Thanks, Alex! That works great in small-type mode with the rotated the screen. I'm curious, how did you do the pdf to bbeb conversion?

Update: Aha, I see you've been exploring the A4 readability issue here...

O.K., I'll keep an eye out for it in the developer's forum. Thanks!

ok, 1.0 beta 1 is posted in the orig thread (which i should've put under the dev forum). I'll make a new thread in the content forum when i'm confident there aren't any bugs.

Glad you like it. If you're looking for more newspapers to read, demonoid.com also has the latest economists (my personal favorite).
