Issuu the YouTube-like for PDF files, has been offering a bookshelf for while. The presentation has a striking similarity with iPad iBook app that Steve Jobs unveiled last Wednesday. I do not know if there is any cooperation between the two companies.
At Issuu.com, users can choose from over 1 million free publications from Bauer Media, Penguin Books, Random House and more including the web’s best indie publishers. Or publish your very own. Issuu has millions of user-generated contents that you can enjoy. Most of them have embed capability.

All the popular features of Issuu are included in the mobile version: get notified of the latest editions, subscribe to your favorite publishers, see what your friends are reading, keep up with your groups, synchronize with My Library, and much much more.
