  1. How did you get this epub book on your blog?

    Would like my students to create epub books in foreign language(spanish, french). And post to their blog portfolios.


  2. To make the ePub file I used the free EPUB editor Sigil:

    After making the epub file, it was just a matter of cut-and-paste (page by page) into blogger. Each section is a Blogger blog post. I had to individually upload the images though.


  3. It’s really awesome. I love it.very interesting and meaningful post. I got some very important views in your post which are very good and applicable for me. top 10 delhi schools I just wish that I’ll see your another post very soon. I am waiting for that.
