I own a Nook, which is the Barnes & Noble version of the Kindle. Now there's the Nook Color which seems so much better but I'm content with what I have for now.
Sorry I wish I could be of more help but I don't know anything about PDFs on the Nook. I really only use it for the basics - reading and book shopping.How is the Nook with handling PDFs? The Kindle sucks in this regard unless you have their deluxe version which is more than twice the cost of the cheapest version.
