I've done a few conversions, and while it's convenient, I'm not really a fan. The font never seems to come out right. Since you're limited to stepping up the font in fixed increments (150%-200%-300%) almost any way you enlarge the type causes the pages get cut up in weird ways that make reading difficult. I will say that changing the orientation of the Kindle (on either side) solves the font problem and pretty much resolves the cut up pages, although each printed page is now two and a-strange-piece-of-a-page long. I finished reading the first show this afternoon; and it's great!

I'm pretty sure that in order to take advantage of some of the Kindle functionality such as variable font size, annotation, Text-to-Speech, etc. you have to convert it. You may be right; I've never tried to drop a PDF into my Kindle without forwarding it to Amazon for conversion.

I appreciate everything you said, but wouldn't you know it, I just bought the PDF of Memories of the future last week and emailed it to Amazon to convert for my Kindle. :-)

Sign me up, Wil! Hopefully, this will be the start of a great adventure in reading even more Wheaton books!
