Enhancing the Reading Experience

It's about time reading got some beats--bada bing bada boom. Booktrack.com allows you to listen to a soundtrack while reading on your IPad or IPhone. If you're reading about a whale swallowing a fisherman you're going to hear that briny sea water gurgling in the back of big blubber's throat. Well maybe not, but you might hear some ambient ocean noise.

Booktrack.com is being funded by a former CEO of Paypal as well as a member of Facebook's Board of Directors, so its got some star power and money behind it. I'm not sure if I need a soundtrack while reading my favorite book, but I think it's a great idea, especially for the kids/tween market. If someone can come up with that special sound a vampire makes when his skin sparkles in the sun I'm sure this app will take off.
