How cool is this?
Today I discovered BookBuzzr, a book marketing tool. One of its features is a flipbook. You upload a PDF of your book, and it converts it to a flip book, complete with the ever-sexy interactive page curl.
Yes, it’s just a Flash file, and I could have done this myself with InDesign, but for the vast majority of people with neither the software nor the skills to do this themselves (or somewhere to host the file), this is a great little tool.
Check out this sample from ‘Ship to Shore’, if you’re curious about how it works. (If you do, be sure to click on ‘View Fullscreen’ when it loads, because I found it chopped off the top and bottom of the pages otherwise.)
