The Future of Books

My sister sent me this, it is super interesting. What do you think?

Wow, this is mind-blowing. Especially that last one, where novels are basically turned into games. Pretty cool, but I can't quite wrap my brain around it yet. Part of the relaxation-aspect of reading is that you give yourself up to the author's interpretation and judgement. You can think, but you don't have to make decisions. This changes all that. Thanks for sharing this!

BTW, I gave you an award on my blog, so whenever you have time, check it out. :)

What do I think
Well its not for me on a personal level but it may well be for the book clubs of the future (well tomorrow I suppose)
As Amy has expressed I too like to curl up with my book and interpret what the writer is telling in my own mind for "me'.

I agree with you both, I think it the first one would be great for academic reading and study, I can definitely see the benefit of the second one, and the third one also sounds very interesting, but I am happy for my book just to be a book. I don't need it to be a full on adventure. Still an exciting idea though!
