Help my nook read continuous text from PDFs

Can I customize PDFs so my nook e-reader doesn't display a break between "pages"?

My nook (Barnes and Noble's e-reader version of the Kindle) makes a mess of PDFs. It seems to keep the page breaks that you'd see when viewing the text in a PDF viewer set on one-page-at-a-time view, which doesn't work with the nook as the nook's screen is much smaller than the PDF viewer. You get empty space for the rest of the "page" whenever it ends, which results in nook pages with large empty gaps instead of continuous text. If I make the text small enough that one "page" fits one nook screen, it's too small to read easily).
I'd like to get PDFs set up to be read like continuous text, rather than with a set page-break. Is this possible? The PDFs I'm working with are mostly ones I've created myself from text files.
