Honestly, if you can read a PDF on your computer, then you can certainly read an ePub or Mobi file. What do you currently have downloaded as your reading program? Adobe Reader? If you like that one Adobe also has a You are not allowed to view links.
Register or Login download for free that allows you to view ePubs seamlessly (unlike with PDF's) and its FREE. There's also You are not allowed to view links.
Register or Login a free Mobi reader from Amazon (no kindle necessary), a You are not allowed to view links.
Register or Login that allows you to read ePubs (also free), a You are not allowed to view links.
Register or Login (again- FREE!) and you can also both convert and read ANY FORMAT with You are not allowed to view links.
Register or Login that's (yes, again) FREE!!! And if you really want to read PDF (WHY?!) you can download Calibre and convert it yourself or you can go You are not allowed to view links.
Register or Login and (again) convert it yourself online (no downloads necessary).
...but pdf files usually are the best to convert to any other file type so its used as a "master" many times. ...using calibre it comes out best and usually is the easiest.
The only feature I would add if I could is the page nos., have not been able to track page nos. on firefox.
PS: Are you really complaining about the quality in which you are getting FREE books? ...go somewhere else.
In a pinned thread in the Requests forum I listed a program that one can use to convert PDFs to MOBI files - it does a slightly better job than Calibre, in my opinion.
3. Also 2 other great FREE solutions are: mobipocket.com - once there, click on the Software tab and download the Mobipocket Creator, but note this software is Windows only. Install it and once it is installed, import an Adobe PDF file (you will see this option on the right hand side once the program launches) and follow the steps to convert it to mobi format. If you need help, consult the support section of the site.
Q: I converted a PDF file, but the result has various problems?A: PDF is a terrible format to convert from. For a list of the various issues you will encounter when converting PDF, see: You are not allowed to view links.
Register or Login. <below>PDF documents are one of the worst formats to convert from. They are a fixed page size and text placement format. Meaning, it is very difficult to determine where one paragraph ends and another begins. calibre will try to unwrap paragraphs using a configurable, Line Un-Wrapping Factor. This is a scale used to determine the length at which a line should be unwrapped. Valid values are a decimal between 0 and 1. The default is 0.45, just under the median line length. Lower this value to include more text in the unwrapping. Increase to include less. You can adjust this value in the conversion settings under PDF Input.Also, they often have headers and footers as part of the document that will become included with the text. Use the Search and Replace panel to remove headers and footers to mitigate this issue. If the headers and footers are not removed from the text it can throw off the paragraph unwrapping. To learn how to use the header and footer removal options, read All about using regular expressions in calibre.Some limitations of PDF input are: Complex, multi-column, and image based documents are not supported. Extraction of vector images and tables from within the document is also not supported. Some PDFs use special glyphs to represent ll or ff or fi, etc. Conversion of these may or may not work depending on just how they are represented internally in the PDF. Some PDFs store their images upside down with a rotation instruction, calibre currently doesn’t support that instruction, so the images will be rotated in the output as well. Links and Tables of Contents are not supported PDFs that use embedded non-unicode fonts to represent non-English characters will result in garbled output for those characters Some PDFs are made up of photographs of the page with OCRed text behind them. In such cases calibre uses the OCRed text, which can be very different from what you see when you view the PDF fileTo re-iterate PDF is a really, really bad format to use as input. If you absolutely must use PDF, then be prepared for an output ranging anywhere from decent to unusable, depending on the input PDF.
Personally I am a bit paranoid about posting Mobi (original format) books, I have a feeling that it has our personal (buyer's) information encrypted in it. So I always convert them to EPubs in hope that it would get rid of some of the encrypted stuff, though I am not sure it would. It's just my false hopefulness I guess. But I rarely convert to PDF though...only EPub.
