I didn't know if one existed and I couldn't find one, so I started my own.  If you have an eBook reader and would like to have some eBooks of your favorites, read on.

As some of you know, I'v been importing PDFs of my favorite fanfics to my Kindle. This allows me to read them where and when I want (like in between sessions at a Dr. Who convention) without being tethered to my computer. I have now found this nice little program called Calibre that is letting me translate the PDFs to ebooks (MOBI format) with metadata and covers and all. I'm redoing my PDFs as ebooks, so that I can take full advantage of the Kindle features. I'm using Live Journal or Dreamwidth names to preserve the integrity of the authors.

(You can convert PDF fics to Amazon Kindle specific files by emailing them to your @free.kindle address, but frankly, the metadata that they generate sucks for air.)

Now to my question. Is there enough interest in this to make my ebooks available to Torchwood fans in a repository? Would the authors approve of it? I personally hate "reinventing the wheel" (translation: I'm lazy), so I would not like to redo the work someone else has already done, and I figure there are others like me out there. I have a website that isn't doing much of anything that I could put them on. It used to be my silly personal site, but I've let it lapse into disuse so it's dusty.

I have to do this in spurts, so it may take awhile for all of them I have now to be converted. Also, I only have Jack/Ianto fics on it (ie. if that pairing isn't in there, I don't bother with it), since that is my main interest. If enough people were interested in having other couple-centric pieces, I'd be more than happy to put them up as well. They just wouldn't necessarily go on my own Kindle.

Thoughts? Discussions? Anything?
