Those old fashioned ‘two-columns per page’ papers, still very common in science and medical journals? How to readify them for the Kindle? Paper2Book, new freeware…

“Utility to re-structure research papers published in US Letter or A4 format PDF files potentially with 2 columns layout. The goal is to try to make them more readable on ebook reader devices with small screen real-estate and without breaking the formatting, fonts, math formulae, etc. It is reported to work quite well for 2 columns papers being converted for the Amazon Kindle 3.”

Nice, but no simple Windows version yet. At present it’s all wrestling with Java and Apache and command lines. I’ve love to see this integrated as a simple one-click conversion service on the Instapaper site.
