I recommend using http://www.scribd.com...­ then you can do a simple embed.

Looked at both of these and I am not sure if that is what I am looking for... I want to host all the data myself. So, maybe a theme that has the: yudu.com, issuu.com, flipviewer.com functionality?

The current version of Wordpress support PDF as an object which means you can upload a PDF in the media manager. Is that what you need?

Or are you trying to use WordPress as the CMS for a magazine that looks like an app?

You might prefer publishing each issue as a part of an Amazon Magazine series.

Then people will use their Kindler Reader Device or App for reading...

And... you'll get a huge chuck of income for each issue.

Unless you have Traffic similar to Amazon, best publish on Amazon for maximum cashflow.

Yes, I would like to have wordpress do all of the work and keep my readers on my site. Currently they have to click on a link which takes them to yudu.com (converts the pdf to a reader). I basically want this type of functionality in wordpress.

Again, you can upload a PDF file in the Upload media area of WordPress. It's clickable and your readers stay in your site.

I am unsure if you have your material in PDF already. But just in case you don't, if you have it in Word Doc, MS Word allows you to save it as PDF file. If you don't have MS Word, then try to download NITRO. It's a free download and allows you to create PDF file. Just be careful when you are installing. It will try to be your default viewer for other file types. Just read through the installation process carefully.

Hope this helps.

This is a different avenue, a different medium and presentation but you might look at Copyblogger's Premise plugin. There are lots of avenues to explore there.

Well, another way that allow you view PDF in flash magazine mode, you can use Kvisoft Flipbook Maker Pro to convert pdf to flash magazine, it is desktop software. And you can flip the magazine just like a real magazine.
