I have an 8GB iPod Touch which I have customized about the way I want it except for the e-book reader. I have tried several such as Bookshelf, Stanza and Bookreader. All have there good points, but most fall sort in support for PDF. I have several reference books in pdf format and would like to import them to the iPod. The biggest problem is that the title, chapter headings and content all run together. Or, they don't reshape to screen size and require horizontal scrolling.

I am looking for suggestions, preferably from experience, for an iPhone e-book reader or an osx converter that would solve this problem for me. I would greatly appreciate any help you are able to provide.

If I have posted this request in the wrong place, please direct me to where it should be.

I can suggest several apps to you:

Air Sharing
Files

Both of those apps are available on the AppStore. There is also an app called "Docs" available on Cydia (if you are jailbroken) that can read pdfs and a bunch of other formats.

Yeah, I personally use Docs and it works pretty well... my only complaint is the lack of clickable links in PDF files.
