Check out this new e-book reader. It’s in beta, but you can sign up to try it out. Looks like it combines the social web with traditional e-reading at a level not yet seen. Basically, you can read a book while chatting with someone else who’s reading the same book at the same time. Or, you could leave comments and conduct an asynchronous conversation over a period of time. An interesting way to conduct a book club, possibly with friends across the country or the world.
