When reading PDF on Kindle, you have to drag it to fit on the screen all the time. People who use Kindle a lot would know a trick to convert the PDF to Kindle format.

Solution 1 Convert PDF to Kindle format via Amazon service

Though you can use some software to convert your PDF file to Kindle format (.azw) Amazon has made it more convenient for you to do it. You can ask them to do the conversion for you, and to be able to do that, simply follow these simple steps:

Step 1:Find Your Personal Email Address within Your Amazon User Account

To be able to find your personal email address, just open your Amazon Account > Manage Your Content and Devices > Manage your Devices, and then click on your device to see your email address.

Step 2:Compose a New Emai
