10 Coolest Innovations For Book-Lovers, Because Reading Is Serious Business
It seems like there’s always something new and exciting for book lovers to totally geek out over — and from e-books to on-demand book printing, cool innovations for readers are almost as exciting as new books themselves (I said almost.)

Perfect for the busy, on-the-go reader who likes to dive in and out of a story without too hefty a time commitment.
