I need to read on my PC laptop some .pages files on a flash drive; how do I do this since they were not saved as a doc or pdf file (and I have no Mac available to change them)?

You may be able to extract (unzip) the .pages package and view the preview PDF inside (if it was saved with a preview). This process is documented here.

Alternatively, there is a Pages to .txt converter available for free on SourceForge. This won't preserve the formatting or layout of the document, or any styles or images however.
