My kindle3 will arrive tomorrow, and I have plenty of PDF files that I want to read on it.
I would like to convert them to txt so I can adjust the font size.
Is there any convenient way to do that?
PS: if there isn't, I shall write one by myself.

Calibre can convert PDF to txt, or better yet, the .mobi reflowable/resizable format supported by the Kindle. It's great open source software for ebook management, which you might want to have installed anyway, once you own a Kindle.
AbiWord is an open source word processor that can import PDF and save it as .txt (or .html or a variety of other Word Processor formats).
As you probably know, Amazon has its own conversion service.
I can think of quite a few additional options, but they would depend on your operating system.
"pdftotext" (from Xpdf).
If you mail the file to your firstname.lastname@example.org address, you can put "Convert" as the subject and Amazon will convert it for you.
