Yes, the point was for the files to work on all the readers, instead of jus=
t the Kindle. To do that, you have to use a non-Kindle format, and ePub (a =
superset of PDF) is the most widely accepted. That gets you the kindle, Son=
y reader, Nook, iPad/iPhone, most Symbian devices, Android, and Blackberry =
devices. Most of the desktops and laptops with moderately recent PDF reader=
s can also handle ePub.

Pure PDF doesn't reformat well for smaller screens or different orientation=
s or font sizes. EPub was designed to cope better with all those things. eP=
ub could be productively read and used on small phone screens; that's hard =
to do with PDF.
