So here's a project that I saw the need for at least two years ago, but have finally hit point where I desperately want to get it done.
Basically what I want to do is to reimplement many of the basic features of the Kindle or Nook as a plugin for Wordpress. The major goal of the plugin would be to make it easier for the reader to catch up with a serial, or simply to read a book that's been broken up into posts on a Wordpress site.
The major features needed in my mind are:
--a way to easily look through the table of contents
--an obvious way to go to the next/previous page
Nice features I hope to implement (but might be more trouble than they're worth):
--an easy way for someone to click on a section of text and suggest an edit
--a way to click on a character's name and get their history or even cast page
--a way to view chapter or book summaries
A feature I'd love to put in, but would almost certainly not be worth it (surely someone's done this already?):
--the ability to read epub and/or Kindle files, allowing people to share their formatted ebooks in whole or in part without making them available for download
I'm going to start work on this soon (this afternoon?), but I'd love to have suggestions from the group as to features that you'd be interested in seeing.
Eventually, I'd also love to have beta testers. The plan is to make this available as a Wordpress plugin for free.
Oh, and Chris, I might ask if you'd be willing to do a little code review.
