Those books on "cloud" bookshelf are books prepared by volunteers and supporters, which include public domain PDF books optimized for iPad screen as well as free or sample publications provided by authors and publishers.
If you are interested in participating to this "cloud bookshelf" effort, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org (or just send PDF files).

Some important suggestions
I love using this app and have been for a while now
There are some features that could help this app better. A feature like:-
Transferring MULTIPLE files at once during Wi-Fi transfer.
This could be THE best update for thiss app ever. Please reply if you acknowledge.
Stable, fast and reads cbr, CBS and PDF
Stable and does not crash.
You can sync files from iTunes or wifi.
Reads czr and cbr files easily. PDF files are opened with scrolling horizontally. Which means if the characters are small you need to do zoom for every page.
Brilliant piece of goods! Except in a few instances when it couldn't/refused to open some cbr files that were more than 100MBs in size... Otherwise it's very very very obedient
