How to Convert a PDF File to the Kindle Format

Amazon.com's Kindle will read a PDF format just the way it is, but you will need to scroll and zoom in to see the whole document. You can convert the document to the format that Kindle reads, enabling you to use the features available in Kindle, such as page-turning and changing font sizes. Amazon.com will convert the files for free.
