sorry, this is pretty much a no-go on a Kindle - like many PDFs unfortunately.

Would be okay on an iPad or Kindle fire though

This is great but the link to the first document is now dead. It was fine the other day... All the rest are fine.

You can try emailing it to your kindle account email address-- that should work, (maybe).

No it won't because the problem is the PDF pages are too big so the text will be too small to read on a Kindle. Basically for it to be readable on a Kindle someone needs to OCR the whole text, then convert it into mobi format. If someone wanted to do this this would be great! We have done this for entire books before, if you break it up into chunks and do a chapter at a time it doesn't seem so bad!

Because it was too big to upload as one document so, rather than split it in half at a random point, I figured it would be easier for people to read like this.
I've never tried using OCR software before but if someone can recommend some Linux friendly programs I'll be willing to give it a crack.
