Any good ebook readers?

Okay I need an ebook reader that allows me to read pdfs (or even converted word documents from pdfs) to an appropriate ebook format?
I tried ms reader but its...not that good
does anyone have a good ebook reader or a way to convert pdfs to a great mobile size like microsoft reader

Re: Any good ebook readers?

There is one straight from adobe. Adobe Reader for Mobile

There is also Adobe LE 2.5, but you have to pay $24.00 for it.

Re: Any good ebook readers?

I use PocketXpdf to read all of my pdf ebooks. I find it easy to just put the ebook into "view text only" mode and then zoom it a bit. It auto screen wraps the words. It has a bookmark option and its free http://pocketxpdf.sourceforge.net/

Re: Any good ebook readers?

I prefer MOBI Pocket Reader. Its free. It allows you to change the text sizes and it remembers where you last left off in the book.

Get it here : http://www.mobipocket.com/en/Downloa...ailsReader.asp

i also use Calibre to convert to mobi format. Its also free and it can convert most files to whatever reader format you want.

Re: Any good ebook readers?

Does anyone know of an ebook reader whose library actually shows the book covers of the books in your library?

Re: Any good ebook readers?

thanks to all of the suggestions
I actually have a way of reading files I truly prefer.

For my pdfs from scientific journals, I convert the pdf to text document (depending on images, convert it to rtf or even word document) and convert the file to .lit to use microsoft reader application.

Recreation is the same process but heavy image base I use text
it isn't perfect but it works well and it looks nice on the screen. It is very easy on my eyes

Re: Any good ebook readers?

I have been using eReader (www.ereader.com) for several years and have bought hundreds of books from the on-line bookstore. Unfortunately, once you start buying eBooks you are locked into a particular store (mobipocket for their reader, ereader for their books, etc.)

I've been very happy with ereader and their store, but wish the reader had a full screen mode similar to mobipockets's reader.

Somone said Mobipocket Reader did not work on HTC Touch Pro 2, which I took to me it did not like the newer, larger screens.

Mobipocket works great on my Treo 800W, but want to move to a larger screen, such as Touch Pro 2.
