There are lots of glitches in the experience of going from Browse to Read in order to view PDFs, including: each time you browse another copy is added to the journal (bug #6729); and crashes if you zoom in too much (bug #7090).

I think these issues merit avoiding use of PDF for the maps in OLPC Library > images > world maps (in /usr/share/activities/worldfactbook-maps/). SVG might be a workable alternative. The originals at don't seem to be available as SVG but there are PDF to SVG converters, and other maps in SVG format.
