What's happening behind the scenes of those appealing e-books on your new e-reader? Look at events occurring right this minute in the chaotic world of reading:

But changing times = new ideas, too!

  • Hybrid Books -- Use the QR code on the print book to access extra material about the book, including gorgeous color images that would be too expensive to print
  • Make the print books really beautiful -- One new direction for publishers is creating books that are also art objects
  • Tell your friends! -- Now there are many, many ways to tell the world about books you liked (e.g., the Goodreads app, which works with most e-devices). The more people you tell, the happier you will make the entire reading community!
