Loading flow... takes too long every time.

When I click on a converted to Epub document, the reader shows 'Loading flow...' for a long time. Then I can read the 1st page. When I go to the 2nd page, I again see 'Loading flow...' once the flow is loaded for the 2nd page, then all pages are visible with little wait time.

How can I 'load the flow' permanently, so future access is not delayed?

The 'page' must be huge (or complex)
or you are running on a really under powered system (low RAM, slow CPU)

Initial load take a bit on a P4 3.2 (2G RAM ), but page turns are good.

Having the book in EPUB format helps. All else is converted on the fly.

@theducks -- 49 pages. Running on an 8GB Quad Linux box. iPad just gives a white page. I didn't wait...

@kovidgoyal epub to epub conversion ?? Sounds like a good idea.

Since Epub does not really have 'Pages".
49 Screens?
49 Print version pages?
I tend to work in Bytes and words (Count pages PI type)

I am guessing OMG coding
