    Um, you get the actual book, write it out on Microsoft Word or Acrobat, and save it as .doc or .pdf.

    what about using an ocr (optical character recognition) program for input, rather than a human?

    i've heard they've improved a lot since they were introduced (ocr programs that is, not humans)

    Throwing my 2 cents in.

    If its a big book then you can use the OCR like 3rd gen noob said to scan the book and convert them to text file eg: *.doc. You can convert them to *.pdf via Acrobat writer.

    However there are e-book compilers that can create a standalone *.exe e-book which I think is great. Once you have the text ready on the computer you can just create one. No one needs an acrobat reader or anything to open those. I would say if you are creating one to distribute then make a stand-alone.

    Microsoft has a free add-on (WordRMR) for MS-Word to create MS-Reader (.LIT) ebooks. You can also download ReaderWorks Standard by OverDrive for free, which can also convert MS-Word and HTML files into .lit format. Both WordRMR and ReaderWorks support images with text. ReaderWorks Pro cost &#036;119 big ones. Adobe Acrobat Professional can create the all familiar PDF files. http://www.pdf995.com/ has a couple of utilities that can convert any PDF file into a text or MS-Word documents. Once you have it in text, html, or word format you can convert it to your heart&#39;s desire. If you have a scanner, you can easily make PDFs or use an OCR proggy to convert any book into text.
