Oprah's Book Club 2.0
Yesterday's seminar from ReadMill
opened up the opportunity for discussion on digital reading. Everyone has their own take on sharing their reading online. I personally dislike, Goodreads,
very much and went into the seminar skeptical. But Henrik was a great presenter and although there are aspects of his tool that I remain skeptical about, there were also some intriguing aspects of Readmill that piqued my curiosity.
Well, today thanks to Rebekah Wallin pointing me to the blog, Rough Type
, I found Oprahs Book Club 2.0
. It seems that rather than seeing other reader's comments and highlighted sections, you can buy an ebook with Oprah's impressions and the passages she has deemed worthy of highlighting. What do you think of this? Is this the start of a new type of business model?
I wonder if this could be applied to education. Would you buy a digital copy of a text book with your favorite professor's comments and highlights?
