This is true if you're reading with the smaller kindle. I should have been clearer...

You can "read" pdf's on the kindle, but it's not preferred. But the way I saw it at the time, I could try it and if it didn't work out, then I'd buy the books in the preferred format. You'd have the same issue with adobe reader on your desktop if your screen was small enough. I'm reading on a DX and the larger screen is sufficient for all the pdfs I've tried so far.

You can drag and drop the PDFs onto your kindle but the viewing experience is far inferior than the kindle format files. For one, you cannot increase the size of the font while viewing PDFs and for most of the PDF books, the native font appears very small on Kindle. You can zoom in but that makes the flow/sequence of pages cumbersome.

My 2 cents...

Kindle in Europe - How to Annoy Customers

I am used to reading English and French books.

If I want to purchase a title from the French Kindle store, I am not allowed to do so, because I am German resident. Owning a Kindle in Europe means that you are only allowed to download electronic books from your local Kindle store, but you won't get what you want to read.

All other Kindle shops are blocked.

I have a choice between and If I choose, I cannot download most German books. If I opt for, I do not have access to many English books.

Solution 1: Buy two Kindles, one for myself ( and another one for my wife (, but then I will get confused....

Solution 2: Switch from to every few months. I would only lose my subscriptions for newspapers or weekly journals.

Solution 3: Buy a different E-Reader.

My Italian Neighbour

I have an Italian neighbour. She cannot read Italian books from elettronica, libri, musica, DVD e tanto altro, because she now is a German resident. The German Kindle shop does not offer Italian titles.

This is the wonderful new electronic world. Amazon does not answer any questions on this subject.
