5-10 minutes, 15-30 minutes, 1-2 hours, 2-4 hours?

It's a 5-15mn thing... Unless you're adding War & Peace or Les MisÚrables of course ^_^

The good thing is that unlike fully manually created books, as soon as we add a new output, it's available on ALL of our books (and we still get a full TOC, footnotes etc...). And we also make advanced use of the metadata: you can browse the website in many different ways, we've got an API that makes it possible for any application or website to interact with Feedbooks (our iLiad application for example) and a personal recommendation system.

Anyone can contribute to adding books on Feedbooks: making the process easier will be one of our goals in the upcoming months.

Next output will be something totally different, not e-paper related and it should appeal to another crowd too.
