How about providing it in proper e-book format for those of us with e-book readers? This wouldn’t have to be a lot of work, since you already provide html excerpts from most of the stories on the web-site. It is a simple mouseclick to convert html to the e-book formats and the reading experience is much better too than with a pdf.

Feel free to mail me if you need help or advice on this. Or if you merely want to tell me to mind my own business 🙂

John has my e-mail.

Hey Peadar,

We’re still getting the hang of PDF… and now you want us to do eReaders too? 🙂

Seriously, which ones do you have in mind? And are the formats proprietary? The layout and art for BG are an important part of the magazine (and takes weeks to do correctly) – I’d hate to have to convert the mag into something that didn’t preserve most of the integrity of the design.
