Many ebook readers like Amazon Kindle, Nooks and other popular readers support native PDF documents but, not every PDF files are really easy to read on a small ebook reader screen. The main problem with the native PDF rendering is that a lot of PDF documents are formatted to read easily on large screen, printed hard copy. Large margins, multiple table columns, and also other format options which is an big issue, if the document is printed on 8.5×11 paper or shown on a 20 inch monitor. The PDF file definitely unreadable when you view it in a e-reader with a 6” screen.
