MagicScroll Is a Minimalist HTML5-based EPUB Reader

By Jason Fitzpatrick on January 27th, 2011

If you’re looking for a polished web-based EPUB reader, MagicScroll allows you to read books from the web, uploaded from your computer, and even share the books with your friends.

Once you upload a book or select one from the web, the interface appears to be almost bare of all menus or settings toggles (everything is tucked along the left hand side of the screen). There you can make the text full screen, check out the keyboard shortcuts, adjust the colors and font, and grab a shortened URL for the book to share with others.

Visit the link below to enter through the main page or jump right into trying it out with this copy of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
