no absolutely not. I love electronic format either pdf or epub files but
for now i like more epub format than pdf.

Robert, thank you for your technical explanations. I didn't thought that

i am sure that your works are ones of high quality but i also think that
for a 6 inches ebook reader the A5 (148x210mm) format is not the
optimum. The best format for static pdf i think is 90x120mm.
