I have found a PDF reader for Android which allows the PDF to be opened in a magazine mode. It comes in Lite and paid versions and I've only tried the latter.
It has to be set to "Double Page - Cover" mode in the Page Layout section of the settings. They also do an iPad and a desktop version
Thanks to @JohnR for that info.
And of course, many thanks to everyone who contributed, helped with ideas, gave feedback, @Safaridude for the spell checking and so on.
