PDF files. In that case, does it make more sense to include PDFs in
the bundle, instead of what is being provided currently? This would
mean that we will not be able to get of the superawesome interface,
but kids will be able to share the books if they want (Browse at the
moment does not share files, it shares URLs, which I believe, is fine,
considering its usecase)

Another option may be to have a gnubook activity, instead of a bundle,
instead of a library bundle. This would be something like the
Wikipedia activity. This means that the exisitng "flipping" interface
is preserved, but at the same time, the activity can have an option
"Keep book to Journal", which would keep the book being read to the
Journal as a single object, in a format which can be opened by Read,
and can be transferred to/shared with other kids as well. It sounds a
bit clumsy at first, but it would let us keep the best of both worlds
(the traditional book like interface, as well as support for sharing).

Does this make any sense ?
