What Do You Look for in an E-Book Experience?

Back in April 2011, you told us you wanted more Irish history features.

Since then, we added dozens of history-related posts, and now we’ve also teamed with Awakin Publishing. They’re giving us exclusive peeks into their latest project… “The Irish in Stories.”

John, Gavin, Katy, and William (the team at Awakin) have already offered a free download of their history-laden Titanic Island Study Guide.

Now, they’re asking you to take a moment to tell them which features you’d be most interested in if you were to enjoy an e-book/digital book experience by yourself or with family.

Select your 5 top features and then use the comments section to tell us what else would enrich this new experience…

  1. I like infographics and love when I come across good ones.

  2. Love hearing and reading. Not such a fan of video interviews. Maps are an important part of any book, e-book or otherwise, when it refers to the history of a place.

    • Good news – there will certainly be an interactive map within the iBook we are creating.

  3. Lots of good ideas above for an App. For an ebook, not so much. As a writer and publisher of traditional as well as ebooks, I have found that ebooks for non-fiction are just not there yet. I like nothing better than to read a fiction book on my Kindle, but for non-fiction I still purchase paper copies. Apple has made it a lot easier to publish to the iBooks platform with their free Author program, but that doesn’t make the medium any better.
