Actually, if you create the PDF, you're in a much better position, since you can set it to have the properties you want it to have. In fact, PDFs you create yourself may well make for the best possible reading experience if you know what you're doing.

Buying a PDF made by someone else is dicey unless you are able to see a sample of it before you pay for it, to find out if it was set up for digital devices. If it's designed for ADE, that means it almost certainly has DRM and you won't be able to make any changes to it. Be wary.

On the other hand, if there is any kind of book where reflow might work reasonably well, it's a novel, since it's unlikely there are a lot of tables or mathematical notation or diagrams, etc., that don't reflow well.
