Rook App Lets Readers Sample eBooks

By Dianna Dilworth 

Rook, a new digital app launching at the London Book Fair, is designed to give readers a chance to sample books while they are in specific locations.

Readers that tap into a particular Wi-Fi source at a cafe, hotel, park or even train line, will be able to use the app to read a book for free. The idea is that readers can sample content and if they like it, purchase the book on their device.

The service will launch in London and New York this spring. Follow this link to find out how to get your books on the network.
