alright guys thanks for the recommendations, i'm creating an epub presently from the finished pdf i made a bit ago. ive never heard too much about epub honestly, i thought pdfs were the standard. i've been so used to just using foxit reader with pdfs, i havent looked any further afield ..
well now that the epub is created it's funny to see that it's only 500 kb in size, the optimized pdf i made was only 5 mb in size, and the original scans of the book are 60 mbs...
the epub looks ok, but the layout didn't stay true to the original pdf, like the optimized pdf i made did.
maybe had i, created an epub straight from the original scans in abbyy, it wouldve came out better. rather than converting from a pdf. it still looks ok though, readable
