    Default Converting from PDF
    I have some eBooks I'd like to read on my iPhone and they are in PDF form. I tried using PDF Viewer, but the text is so small you have to zoom in quite a bit, after that you now have to move the screen left and right for every sentence. I also installed Books.app, is there an easy way to convert my PDF files to a format Books can read? Thanks.

    Never mind, I found a good solution. This little command line program:
    http://www.snapfiles.com/download/dlpdf2html.html

    It was extremely fast, 2-3 seconds for a 500 page book, and left me with 3 HTML files, the main book, a file with page links, and a file with frames for the other other two. Of course Books.app will only read the main book file, but that's fine.
