    Hi, I need an area where to show a list of PDF and allow users to select one and show content.

    I'd like a "flip page" effect.

    Is it possible?

    Thanks

    Search the WordPress.org plugin repository:

    That's nothing to do with WordPress. PDF files are not web pages. They cannot even be shown within a browser window without a browser plugin. This is a browser/PDF issue.

    You could embed the pdf into a WP page but that's about it.

    Even then, whether a random visitor can see it depends upon what browser and pdf/browser plugin s/he is using.

    True. From my experience though a service like scribd.com usually always works fine. Using the html5 embed code it uses an iframe and js similar to youtube.
