Which e-book format?

All of my stories can be read in 📕 pdf and 📗 epub formats. They are compatible with e-book readers and apps including Kindle.
📕 pdf – Fixed layout. If you make the page bigger or smaller, the text does not reflow. You can zoom in and out, but you cannot change the type style. Not suitable for small devices such as phones.
📗 epub – ‘Liquid’ layout. It reflows the text when you change the appearance and size to your liking. Kindle now uses epub as its default file type.
Amazon’s instructions for sending your downloaded epub files to your Kindle Reader or app are here.
