Way cool. But why do the people who put books online not realize that PDFs are an absolutely terrible format for image collections as there aren’t any PDF viewers optimized for viewing them? This would be so much better as a CBZ archive, and would be easier for the libraries to create (CBZ is just a zip file with a different extension).

actually, more like "because adobe has traditionally
ripped off many aspects of the publishing industry,
thus giving it some deep pockets, which allowed it
to buy up and shelve all of the better competitors..."
