There are many types of e-book readers. Some of them support multiple file formats such as PDF and EPUB. There are also those that only support a particular file type or format. As for the Kindle Reader, you can use it to read AZW files as well as MOBI and PDFs. It’s just that if you opt to read PDF files on Kindle, then you won’t be able to increase or decrease the size of the text. You can’t also change the reading background from white to black or even sepia.
