Iraq Study Group Report?

Has anyone looked at it on the Reader? If so, how does it look?

I don't have time to try it in the next few days, but I'm curious to know if it's possible to read it on the Reader?

Relatedly, I'm surprised the Sony Connect Store doesn't have the 9/11 Commission Report. I wonder if it will offer the Iraq Study Group Report.

It is readable on iLiad's screen. Well, it's content is another story.
I'm not a big fan of the font Times New Roman.
I have a overwhelming desire to use iLiad's stylus to scribble on it, mark section as wrong, stuff like that.

pdf file has no hyperlinks [created with Word on Mac OS].

Report in rtf format

I reformatted from the PDF. It looks fine on my Reader.

I exported it from Acrobat and resaved it in MSWORD. Let me know if you have any problems with it. I'm still learning how to make files Reader-friendly.

Silk Pagoda has a Reader formatted version of the report available for $0.00

Sorry, they don't have an iLiad version.

Is it much different than the one Fugubot created?

I think it's an LRF format, otherwise I'd expect not.

Audible.com is offering the report as an audiobook for free until Dec. 20th for registered customers.

I have say, I'm more than a bit disappointed that Sony has not formatted the ISG Report for the Reader and made it available (either for free or for purchase) via the Connect Store. I have just spent the last 1.5 hours trying to produce a nicely formatted copy. I began with the RTF copy provided by Fugubot, but the font is too small for me, and enlarging it produced poor results. I then downloaded the copy from Silk Pagoda, but the text is kind of light. I then tried Book Designer (the use a different font than the one in the Silk Pagoda version), but there are pagination problems; I know a fix is coming.

Now that Audible.com is doing what it can to get this government report into people's hands, I'm a little surprised Sony hasn't made a similar move. And my complaint is not about a free vs. a commercial copy. It's that there is no copy formatted nicely for the Reader, nor is there a copy of the 9/11 Commission Report even if I wanted to buy it (and I would). I don't want to have to print it out or buy a paper copy given that I have a Reader.

Attached is a conversion of iraq_study_group_report.pdf into RTF format. I haven't found any of the PDF's to be that readable on the reader so far.

BTW I just noticed that it is now for sale on the CONNECT store for $3.96. That is if you're just dying to pay for the book :-)

If you by the dead tree version a portion of the proceeds goes to a vet/family of vets support group. I wonder if the same applys to the online version.
