Marvin does it very elegantly -- via email!
You have 2 options in Marvin:
- export highlights and annotations in a standard (and human-readable) XHTML file
- export bookmarks, highlights and annotations in a special backup format (MRV file)
As soon as you touch the menu option, an email message opens, with the XHTML or MRV file attached. I then email it to myself, which makes it available on all my computers as well as handheld devices.
If you delete a book and later wish to restore your bookmarks/highlights/annotations, just look up that email message and open the MRV file from it. That's it. You also get the option to either merge your current bookmarks/highlights/annotations with those in the MRV file, or to replace them with what is in the MRV file.
In the same way, if you wish to share your bookmarks/highlights/annotations with someone else, it couldn't be easier. Two taps with your finger, and that's it -- you simply email the MRV file to them.
