I did a search for "creating epub from pdf" and got a bunch of hits. One of
them seems to be just what you may be looking for:

Subject: Epub Format -- pdf to epub conversion

Have any of you used or seen the use of the *.epub format in the technical
writing communities? Also, do you know of Microsoft or Acrobat methods for
producing the format? I couldn't find any information on the Microsoft site,
and the Acrobat site mainly mentioned use of InDesign to produce the format.
I downloaded an Open Document converter, but I would really like to just
convert my PDFs to EPUBs, to test their useability on a Sony ereader.

My understanding is that PDFs don't by themselves automatically reflow text
to make it more easily readable on an ebook screen, but epub files do.
