Issuu: Turn PDF files into online flip books
While there are plenty of services out there that let you embed a PDF file on a web page, Issuu has to be the prettiest we've seen. When you upload a PDF document, Issuu converts it into web-based document that looks more like a book than a text document. The PDF can then be embedded on pretty much any website, including Facebook, MySpace, LiveJournal, or Blogger pages.
We submitted the Brooklyn Area Guide from the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, because it just happened to be the first PDF we could find. We don't know what that says about us, but you can see the result above.
The text is a bit hard to read, but you can click on the file to open up a larger player in another window, complete with a full screen mode.
