As I hope that a 30 minute charge re-sets my wife's sad, half-frozen Kindle with a cracked case , I'm also looking to plan b: a new ereader. What's the best device out there that's just made to read books? Bonus feature: built-in reading light, or a case with light. [more inside]

Good designer to convert PDF to ebook?

I have a PDF that I'd like to convert to ebook format. It's straightforward - body text with just a handful of images - but the ebook needs to have the same font and style of the PDF.

Any Mefites with experience selling products via digital delivery?

I am looking at different methods of digital delivery/download/payment. (I have an ebook I will soon be offering.) PayPal offers this directly, I am somewhat familiar with e-junkie and I know there are others. Do we have any Mefites who have used any of these services, or knows of someone who has, and can share their experience? Suggestions? In advance, as always -- thank you!

help me find obscure ebooks and make them where necessary

I care enough about getting all my physical media into digital form that I'm ready to hand-scan my remaining books where necessary. Before I do this, what are all the ways I should search to be sure a given book doesn't exist as an ebook I could buy (or in any other digital form)? Also: any hints for efficiently doing the scanning & OCR?
