View Full Version : Kindle and WoodenBoat PDFs

I've got the USB stick from WoodenBoat magazine that has all the back issues through out the years. I've been contemplating a Kindle purchase recently. Has anyone tried the WB pdfs on a Kindle and do they look right? It would push me over the edge to buy a Kindle, as I hate reading on my computer...

I find magazine PDFs almost unreadable in portrait mode on my 10" Android tablet unless I zoom in, in landscape mode it's a beautiful thing. If you can, try out a 6" model with a PDF before you decide, you may want to look at the larger DX model with the 9.7" screen.

What Dryfoot said, I gots a few pdf's on my standard Kindle. I would advise against buying one for reading PDF files. Having said that I love my Kindle, just don't feel like PDF docs are it's best gig...

I'll have to try the convert in the subject line, For me I send word docs to my kindle and they come out fine.

Donn, your culture and care pdf's, are they set up kinda like electronic 4" x 6" notecards?

Being dyslectic I opened this thinking of PFDs . . . .
