I was playing with PDFs and Kindles (still waiting for my Kindle, but did this with my mother's)...they can read them, but you get no control over font size (when you magnify, it magnifies off the screen), and the contrast can be an issue as well (ends up gray on gray). However there are a bunch of free converter apps that can make mobi or azw files from them, and that solves all. I use a Mac, and have used Calibre to this end. Don't know what the Windows equivalent is, but no doubt there are dozens. ePubs I don't think they can natively read (could be wrong), but again, the converters will chomp them out for you. edit - I guess I should say - the above is assuming you are using PDF version of text only/predominantly books...I doubt the converters could successfully parse a Powerpoint deck saved as a PDF - and even if it could - the fact that it is black and white won't leave you with much worth presenting....
