Starting today, the vook, which blends text and video, will offer mobile users a new way to read. The latest in digital book technology, a vook uses professionally produced video to add depth to the
information offered by nonfiction. For fiction, vooks use text and video to advance the plot and enhance place. Four vooks -- two fiction, two nonfiction -- are being published today by Atria Books as
part of a partnership between Simon & Schuster and Vook. The inaugural vook titles are available in two formats: mobile applications for the iPhone and iPod touch, or as Web browser-based editions at
www.simonandschuster.com/aboutvook and www.vook.com.
