There was a recent article in the washington Post about electronic books. "As books go beyond printed page to multisensory experience, what about reading?" By Monica Hesse, Monday, December 28, 2009
What I'm reading is a Vook -- a video/book hybrid produced in part by Simon & Schuster's Atria Books. Interspersed throughout the text are videos and links that supplement the narrative. In one chapter, the Greek ambassador receives a mysterious DVD, and readers must click on an embedded video to learn what's on it. In another, kidnapper Jack ominously tells his hostage that he's going to prove that he means business.
