Changing Default PDF Viewer in OS X?

I like Adobe Reader much more than Preview for viewing PDF files. Is there any way I can change the default PDF viewer from Preview to Adobe Reader so I don't have to close Preview after opening a PDF, start Adobe Reader and open the file I just need (which I was just viewing a moment ago)? Computer specs are in signature...

Thanks, Alex
