Hi all!

Any advice on reading PDFs via the Kindle Keyboard?  I can install the PDFs just fine, but often there is excess "white" space where the margins are on the PDF.  Anyone know of some software to mass-crop non-text space?

Thanks!
Bob

Have you tried converting PDF to PRC (Kindle compatible format) using MobiPocket Creator?
Download and install MobiPocket Creator from MobiPocket.com (you need to make sure you install the Publisher).
Open MobiPocket Creator and on the right side of the main screen you should have the Import from existing file options, one of them being the PDF format.
Choose the files you need and import them.
After importing the files, select Build from the top menu.
This will create the file with the .prc extension recognized by the Kindle and open the folder where the file is saved.

Good luck!

I've never found PDF's formatted for a standard sheet of paper to be satisfactory on the smaller screen Kindle.

If it's basically all text, a conversion should work. Calibre is well regarded and there are other options as well.

If it's got columns or pictures or other 'layout' type formatting, that will all be lost in conversion, though, so if it's essential to the document, don't bother.
