PDF Books on I-PAD/Tablets and Kindle

I am hoping to get some feedback on how the children’s pdf books look on other electronic devices. Some viewers say there are formatting issues, others say they work fine. Not having a kindle or i-pad myself, I’d love to hear from those who do. Should we convert books to e-pub, i-books and other formats, or, are they useable as a pdf?

    I’ve just got an an android tablet, and I can also confirm all the pdf books on the site work wonderfully in the pdf reader, both picture books and chapter books, and I must say, it is so much easier now to read the chapter books, I’m working my way through a few more for upload approval soon.

    Forgive me for my somewhat critical remarks above.
    Kindle is designed for reading alone, so reformats books to fit the page, and this, I guess is why it’s sometimes difficult to read pdfs on them. However the pdfs can be read:
    Here is an article on how. IF the pdf is created as a pdf I presume it will be best, and this is they way all our books are, books that are scanned to a pdf would be more difficult.

    Here’s a link to a tutorial:
