Converting PDF to Kindle

We can find many Chinese Classics on Archive.org website, you can download Kindle format, PDF format or other format from this website, but Kindle version lost many symbols and Chinese characters, while PDF just can't be fit into a 6-inch screen.

There is a very nice tool called K2pdfopt, it can convert PDF or DJVU file to be read on your Kindle E-Reader.

I tried James Legge's The Book of Rites, it conserves all symbols and Chinese characters in the Notes. Though the lines are jagged, still nice to read.

The picture below shows how the program preserves the Chinese character in the notes:

This conversion preserves the original scanned copy in maximum extent, and improves reading experience on a 6-inches screen.
