You don’t even need an e-reader. Just click on the link in Safari or your email and it will open up. It’s as easy as that!

…yeah… iPod Touch/iPhone can read .pdfs. Did you even try?

aww thats great lovelocke… explain how they can.
do you lots think I’m retarded? ofcourse I know safari can read them, but what’s the use in that with my iPod touch? I have to be in wifi range – at home. geeze guys, think!

btw Eambos, I don’t want to sound angry with you, nice suggestion, though I guess it’s a bit obvious.

More “advanced” an answer, I suppose, is if your iPod is jailbroken, there are apps that let you cache sites/emails (see: attachments) to your local iPod.

Including the gmail app which does this automatically.

Yeah, you have to be in wifi range, but once it’s downloaded you should be able to read it anywhere. I hope that amswers your question.

@Lovelocke, would you stop asking me if I tried? Have you ever tried not being a cock? and sadly I don’t have G-mail, I’ve got hotmail, which in hindsight was a bad choice.
I don’t particularly want to jailbreak my iPod either coz you never know if it’ll get broken.

@Eambos, yeah I think you’ve got the best idea then. I’ve got mail on my iPod with my sites email, so maybe I’ll have a go at emailing myself pdfs. GA’d

I’ve emailed large PDFs to myself and had no problem opening them when I was on WiFi.

@Cage: Lousy response to our good answers… I’m sorry to see that you can’t google OR say thanks.

Did you even try?
