Calibre will convert pdf to epub, but in my experience it's hit and miss whether
the result is usable.  Things seem to work best when the pdf has no images, and
doesn't have multiple columns.  A pdf -> epub converter that worked would be
really nice...so many technical papers and books are available only in pdf.
