If you’re like many people, your mobile device is like your right hand—it’s hard to imagine life without it. In addition to everything else that you may rely on your smartphone or other mobile devices for, a growing number of users have discovered the excitement of being able to use their devices as e-readers.
Reading e-books on your mobile phone can be extremely convenient, particularly during travel or hands-free commuting by bus, train, or plane—but really any time that you want to have easy access to your favorite stories. Though you might worry that the smartphone screen could be too small for efficient reading, the fact is that even with a standard four-inch display, you have the option to increase the point size of the text so that it is larger than in a printed book. Of course, you can also use other devices like pads and tablets for your reading pleasure.

You’re most likely already very familiar with PDF files because of their security features. PDFs are “read-only” documents that no one can modify without leaving an electronic footprint, and for that reason, they’re often employed to help meet legal document requirements and for electronic signatures.

Since most computers and devices come equipped with Adobe Reader, there’s a convenience factor to sticking with PDFs for your electronic reading.
