PDF VS ePub
PDF files can look the same as the original format. However, opening a PDF document on portable devices and zooming in for better reading will have your text go outside your screen. You have to scroll in order to read the whole text. ePub is designed for reflowable content and it can adjust properly to fit the size of different screen. ePub can optimize for particular display device and its readability for mobile devices is better than PDF.
