Most people who sell through Smashwords though are authors with fewer books. Yeah, to convert 100 books like you have would be a nightmare, but not bad at all if you have a handful. Yesterday I worked on a book for someone while on break at work, fixing it so it would be more compliant and friendly with the different readers.
