How to open pdf file with e-ink reader from the shell/adb?

I would like to open PDF file from the command line, just like, for example,
I can open a web page:

am start -a android.intent.action.VIEW
I tried the following variants, but none of them work:
am start -a android.intent.action.VIEW /extsdcard/myfile.pdf
am start -a android.intent.action.VIEW file:/extsdcard/myfile.pdf
am start -a android.intent.action.VIEW file:///extsdcard/myfile.pdf
I also found that the following opens list of recent books
am start -n
but that is not yet what I need.

Any ideas?
