This and other interesting reading stuff can be found on scrnmgs.com, a gateway to online flash magazines. If you sometimes get a bit bored of reading blogs – which I do once in a while – and want a richer reading experience, this is an intriguing way of exploring something new and unexpected.

Try also pdf-mags.com, where you find “more than one-hundred free PDF mag’s from all over the world with main focus on art, design, illustration and culture”.

Issuu – from pdf to eBook in no time!

TechCrunch made me aware of this really cool new tool:

With Issuu you can convert your favourite PDF files to flipable eBooks (looks great!) thanks to the Issuu online viewer. You can share, embed and bookmark the publications, just like on SlideShare.

If SlideShare is the YouTube of PowerPoint, this is definitely the YouTube of PDF! The best thing about it is that from now on one can really feel that reading a PDF online isn’t a waste of time and energy, but a real extra value. Issuu has a really smooth interface not difficult to navigate and it gives you that bookish feeling to your documents which motivates you to actually read them!
