    I have a bunch of PDFs, and would be interested in viewing them through Books. They are all organized through chapters and pages, etc. Would it be possible to view them as a PDF or other type of file format, since these PDFs are scans with pictures and text? Thanks.

    m just gonna take an educated guess and since i dont use the books app im more then likely wrong. BUT i think you could convert those PDF's to ebook format (is that even a format or am i making stuff up?) then the books app could read your PDF's since they would be in ebook format and the book app is designed to read ebooks.

    Otherwise i doubt the book app has support for the PDF format.

    nope, ebook app recognizes only two kinds of files - simple text or txt and html files. Otherwise you should use pdfviewer or read through apache...
    hope to see fb2 support in ebook app...

    I have 3 PDF files each with 300 pages, will it work?

    I am trying to save it as a htm formats from a word processor by copying and pasting the images from the PDF and saving it to a different format. Will this work?

    I bet there must be a more efficient way than manually going through each page ... Acrobat Pro 8 has an option to export to Word Document ... this though just generates images from each page and puts it in a doc format ... doesnt really do text. You could also use the "select text" tool in Adobe to manually select the text from the PDF and save it in a txt or doc file ... this way you could read it in Books...

    Does this PDF viewer view PDFs with 300+ Pages? And can I zoom in without pixelation and good quality text?
