I'm hoping to move PDFs that have two-column pages over to ePub and actually get the text formatted sanely in the process. At this point, I'm leaning toward extracting the text from said files, then running the result (after manual cleanup) through Calibre to ePub (I've tried direct conversion with disappointing results), but have yet to figure out what's going to be my best intermediate format to get decent output that'll be readable on my iTouch.
If there is any way to work out PDF to ePub?

PDF is the worst file format for reading on eBook devices. However, you may try GoodReader or ReaddleDocs iPhone apps. They have a text reflow feature to extract and show only the text from the PDF file.
Also, you may try this tutorial about how to convert PDF to ePub for iPod. Results depend entirely on the PDFs that you want to convert.
Hope it can do you a favor.
