how to copy/paste - print - an enlarged copy of PDF file w/Adobe Acrobat Reader

I have a PDF file, 8.5 x 11 page printed on both sides, so two pages. The print is very small and 80% of it is illegible. I have used 75% zoom and it can be read easily. When I try to print the only option I get is the smaller version of pages 1 or 2.
What can I do to get a copy of this enlarged version of the page?

You cannot do printing with page scaling with the Reader, the Pro version allows a workaround for this using tiled page scaling (and even that is not ideal) but this option does not exist in Reader.

The only thing you can do is copy and paste, click anywhere on the page whilst in reading view and select all (CTRL+A) then CTRL+C to copy and paste (CTRL+V) into Word or whatever you choose.

From there you can edit the text further and reformat to suit.

the pages copy/pasted without the control key.
