Convert PDF, .lit or .epub for Kindle without a Conversion Program

Although pdf can be viewed on the kindle; It isn't suitable for reading books. The pages need zooming, and you loose all the options of customizing the font to your preferred size and line spacing.
Below both the screen shots are of the same page & book, but in different formats.

Thanks ever so much, this is fantastic! Especially as I don't want to install 10 thousand programs on my PC.
All the best from Mornag
