PDF's from outside sources

I have lot of PDF's of scripts and short stories to read on my Kindle, but I find I have to zoom in on every individual page in order to read them clearly. Anyone know of an app that will auto-zoom into the PDF's for you as not to slow down reading?
Thanks!

Secretadmire, I have the same problem, or the PDFs in question have something weird happen with the format on my Kindle--missing letters, etc. I have found an app that works in some cases: Calibre (Calibre E-book Management) deals with PDFs that aren't under license from someone else (e.g. Apple). I hope this helps--it didn't help with my "free" Apple e-book downloads but it might with my other (actually free) PDF e-books, and when I try/retry it I will update you. :)

Unfortunately not, I'm out of a job and can't get any paid apps at the moment. But once I get back on my feet I'll be able to buy it.

Calibre is a free app.
