Can anyone help me convert a Kindle book to a PDF? [more inside]
I'd like to create a single PDF document made up of 50 photos. Is there free or cheap way to do this without sacrificing quality? Thank you!

Probably every page will have pictures. I want the design to be magazine-like, with the words many times ‘on top’ of the pictures. I have Photoshop and a decent knowledge of it and I just got Lightroom, but I don’t know much about how to use it yet. I think I’d like to design (at least some, if not all) the pages in Photoshop.

I'm writing a programming ebook (on introductory programming for bench biologists, if anyone's interested) and am trying to figure out the best tool chain.

What would you recommend for a compact device that reads pdfs? I've recently started train commuting and have 30 minutes on a regular basis to read. There are quite a few large pdfs that I read.
