Amazon patents 'DVD extras' for ebooks (Wired UK)

Amazon patents 'DVD extras' for ebooks (Wired UK) | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Amazon has been awarded a patent describing a way to enhance your electronic reading experience with more personalised content -- not just from publishers, but from your friends as well
Marianela Camacho Alfaro's insight:

"The online retailer was granted a patent on 2 July outlining a "Customised Electronic Book with Supplemental Content" ( Patent #8478662). It describes a way to enhance Kindle ebooks by tacking on supplemental material provided by publishers or reputable sources. The ebooks would be personalised by adding additional content within the specific interests of individual readers, or reader types. So, you could be reading A Game of Thrones and an additional story line or illustration (for example, a map) could be accessed from within the book, sort of like a DVD extra."
