"Given the revolutionary scale of change for all things that make up the trappings of youth in 2013– phones, music, computing, media, and gaming to name the most obvious – it is startling how little has been done to revolutionize the experience of reading a book.

Better cover art and greater portability in the form of an e-book for many titles, but otherwise almost entirely the same."
