How can that be?
Megareader, stanza and several others have been approved by the Apple store, and they all have the feature of adding custom catalogs.
Please consider adding this feature, but if you do it, do it right and make it background downloads. Some of the others, (Megareader notably) only download one book at a time from a catalog.
It should really be like Stanza, where multiple books download in the background while you continue to browse/read.
