If you were to stumble into my house in the evenings, you’d probably find dishes in the sink and Hubby and I on the sofa with our respective laptops in our respective laps. Even if I’m reading I like to have a laptop nearby so I can look stuff up or take care of some item off my to-do list that surfaces through the morass of my memory while I’m reading about the hot hot sexxing. Nookie: it jogs your memory.
I think Harlequin has been looking in the windows at my reading habits, because their new ebook bears a resemblance to how I read and research at the same time:
We have a unique (and pretty cool) version of one of our titles. Nicola Cornick’s Unmasked is available as an Enriched Edition eBook in Adobe Digital Editions. Throughout the eBook, there are hyperlinks to websites that provide additional information about the story details in order to enhance the reading experience. For example, if a reader has always wondered what is involved with dancing the Cotillion, they can simply click the hyperlink and a window will pop up to provide them with information and an image. The blue buttons along the side were designed to be unobtrusive, providing readers with the option to choose how interactive they want their experience to be.
The enriched eBook is only functional when the computer is connected to the internet, so reading the enriched book on an ebook reader wouldn’t work in terms of the extra content. But either way, it sounds coooooool.
