Hi. Just got my first Kindle, the paperwhite $119. I wanted to use it to download scanned books that are in pdf format. I have downloaded several pdfs and am disappointed to find that many words a page will have a letter missing, even though they are in the original pdf and can be seen just fine if opened on a regular computer or laptop. I tried saving and loading the pdfs again, but with the same results (same letters missing, too). Enlarging the pdf on the paperwhite doesn't help.

Any thoughts?

Try sending the PDFs to your @kindle address for that device with the words convert on the message/subject line. Amazon will take the PDFs and convert it to mobi files for it to be read on device.
