You need the full Standard version of Acrobat or better, go to tools->Advanced Editing->Link tool. Draw a rectangle around the text to link and it will prompt you for link options (in-document, web URL, link colors, etc.)

but under "tools" I have only:
"Select and zoom"
I'm on Adobe Reader 8

Read rockinbill's statement again. Reader is just that, a reader program. You need to purchase Acrobat Pro to make links... and do many other things

Well, you don't need pro - the full Standard version of Acrobat can do a lot of this. But it has to be Acrobat, not Acrobat Reader.

Your other option would be to create the e-book in Word and use a print server to save as a .pdf.

You can also use Foxit PDF Editor and Foxit reader. It is quite easier and faster than adobe acrobat. Find full version. Thanks.

You can do this in OpenOffice too. Use writer and export to a pdf file.

... and OpenOffice is FREE ;)

I've never tried exported PDF's from anything but Open Office, those will properly export their links?
At any rate, you certainly won't be able to do all the other cool stuff a $300 app will allow you to do:
- Create bookmark sidebars
- edit the PDF directly
- apply password security
- import other PDF's into the document, allowing you to combine PDF's of incompatible apps
- Add annotations and notes
- apply a digital signature
- read the page out loud (in a bland, monotone voice, but it does read it . . . )
