Put them in an Open Office or LibreOffice document and export it as a pdf.

You need the convert command from ImageMagic, which you should have. For a full manual, see http://www.imagemagick.org

I think frankbell is correct. Just select the entire list you want in a gui and copy and paste???

Unless you mean you now want 300 pdf files too.

Otherwise DavidMcCann may have a solution.
