eBook Reader Design Fosters Studying And Collective Thinking
Addr knows you can get back into reading with a little help from your friends
One of the most consistent critiques of eBooks coming from book lovers is that they isolate readers. Peer-to-peer lending is still a new concept, and most eBook readers are far more likely to just buy an ePub file ‘new' from giants like Apple or Amazon. Serious readers miss the experience of being gifted a book by a friend – with their inscription and/or marginalia – or buying one from the bookstore with mysterious and sometimes enlightening marks. A new eBook reader called Addr, however, promises a return to the glory days of social reading.
