Re: AUDITORY Digest - 14 Dec 2009 to 15 Dec 2009 (#2009-285)

I have a Sony Reader, the reflow on pdfs doesn't work too well for 2 column papers, and if you display the full page it is too small to read.
I've been considering trying to reformat some of my latex based papers to create pdfs of the right size and putting them up on the web. 
A friend has an iRex DR1000S ebook reader, which has a much bigger display and is fine for reading A4 size pdfsof academic papers, so that might be another option.

Subject: Digital Book Readers for journal articles

Perhaps this is not the right forum for this, but does anyone have any 
experience of trying to use a digital book reader (in particular, the 
Sony Touch Edition) to read pdf's of journal articles? As far as I can 
tell from the specs, it would really be best to have pdf's formatted in 
a very particular way, but it wasn't clear to me whether or not 
arbitrary pdf's would be workable at all.

Thanks for any help --

Yours - Stuart
