These PDFs have been formatted to be read upon your smartphone

when it is held horizontally. 

Downloading these PDFs to your smartphone is child's play,

however navigating them and bookmarking them could drive you to drink.

Therefore I strongly recommend that you only open the PDFs

using the FREE kindle download.

 

 

 

When you do, a dialog box will ask you

if you'd like to covert your PDF into the Kindle format.

Enthusiastically click NO
