On this site I often see searches for topics on creating books, magazines, and comic books.

In the past I’ve mentioned some resources for easily creating book type apps from images and PDF files.

This library makes things even easier than the previously mentioned frameworks by allowing you to take HTML pages complete with your content, and automatically turn those into an interactive book.

The library has already been used in many different iPhone and iPad apps currently in the app store.

The library is the Baker eBook Framework.

This framework is already quite popular, and you can visit the homepage here with full usage instructions and download information.

The framework does not as of yet support the iOS 5 Newsstand for magazines so you may want to check out the Newsstand tutorial that I recently mentioned for just that purpose.

If you’re just starting out and just want to get an interactive eBook or comic book  app out there with this framework you should be able to do it quickly.
