RTF files should not be anywhere near 40mb for average books. Generally under 1mb or possibly up to 2-3 for very long books would be the acceptable range for our purposes. I wonder if the TIF images are being inserted into the files thus causing the size spike.

Munawar I believe you are allowed to zip your book before you upload it and that would make it smaller. You could also upload as a DOC file which sometimes is smaller than an RTF file. 40 mb is a big file for a book though. The two I uploaded last night were both rtf files and I don't think either of them were bigger than 2 mb.
