Ok, so you would like to embed a cool bookshelf, but would rather not have to buy and then learn some expensive software to make your bookshelf.  This hack will allow you to embed an entire folder of PDFs/PPTs/eBooks into any page on your network.

Back in the day, issuu.com used to provide widget codes for embedding "shelves" into a site.  After doing away with shelves and calling them 'stacks' they changed the URL structure.  However, the old code can be modified to adapt to 'stacks'.  Now if you have a public "Stack on Issuu in which you have uploaded documents to your account and placed them in a stack, you can have the Bookshelf version on your Ning site.  And yes, you could have a collaborative community shelf. and btw, Issuu Iframes are supported by Ning

Take this code for example:

<iframe src="http://static.issuu.com/widgets/shelf/index.html?folderId=FOLDERID&amp;theme=theme3&amp;rows=3&amp;thumbSize=small&amp;roundedCorners=false&amp;showTitle=true&amp;showAuthor=true&amp;shadow=true&amp;effect3d=true" frameborder="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="no" width="100%" height="400"></iframe>

FOLDERID= URL for stack with the dashes added. 

Example:  https://issuu.com/landsurveyor/stacks/683b5381b3364c989987deb96a221c61

That part on the end is what you need.  It is number of 36 chars that you get on address bar when you enter stacks (example: https://issuu.com/username/stacks/FOLDERID). When you replacing that in code you must paste 36 chars in this format 8-4-4-4-12 with - between chars. And voila its working. You can change theme and other stuffs in code.

683b5381-b336-4c98-9987-deb96a221c61

    8             4        4       4             12

you can even change the theme by changing 1 number

Feel free to fork my copy to make your own....
