convert PDF to Kindle

PDF is one of the commonly used formats for ebooks. For DRM free PDF, you can freely read them on Apple device, Nook, Sony, Kobo, Nexus, etc. You're even allowed to read it in your Kindle device if your PDF is DRM free. However, if you have tried that, you may find it's an unpleasant experience. You have to zoom back and forth all the time.

Actually, most of your PDF books purchased from online stores are Adobe DRM protected. But your Kindle device only supports Kindle DRM protected books. To successfully convert PDF to Kindle, the first and most important step is to make sure your PDF book is DRM free and your PDF document is password-less. If your PDF is password protected, then you can refer to this article to know how to remove PDF password.
