calibre is a powerful and easy to use e-book manager. Users say itâ€™s outstanding and a must-have. Itâ€™ll allow you to do nearly everything and it takes things a step beyond normal e-book software. Itâ€™s also completely free and open source and great for both casual users and computer experts.
PDFCrop is a Perl script that crops the white margins of PDF pages and rescales them to fit a standard size sheet of paper. It makes the printed pages far more attractive to read!
