Shameless Self Promotion here:

You can subscribe to Hinduism Today Digital Magazine for free. The  
concept was seeded by Dan's Smart  Books, with added features built  
into a prototype by our team here and the "heavy lifting" coding was  
done by Andre.

But I think the concept of a Revolution front end to PDF resources  
that live on a web server and are downloaded and stored as a library  
on the local hard drive  is a very solid concept for the edu world.

of course Dan's book is also there  as a teaching tool.
