Booking Through Thursday #2

Booking through Thursday is a weekly meme where we discuss a bookish question.

This Weeks Question:
With the advent (and growing popularity) of eBooks, I’m seeing more and more articles about how much “better” they can be, because they have the option to be interactive … videos, music, glossaries … all sorts of little extra goodies to help “enhance” your reading experience, rather like listening to the Director’s commentary on a DVD of your favorite movie.
How do you feel about that possibility? Does it excite you in a cutting-edge kind of way? Or does it chill you to the bone because that’s not what reading is ABOUT?

I like it, personally. I've always liked e-books, because then i can take a bunch of books with me on one little device instead of carrying around heavy books. Ive always liked the little extra's that come with my book. Im always so excited to check em out after im done with the book. Its like my dessert after a good book meal =] With so many people interested in books now, especially YA, i think its a fantastic idea. You have all of these fansites and fan-twitters for authors and the books they write, people go crazy over books now, so i think its really cool to give them little extra things to gush over. I know thats what i do lol. It makes me sad when i get to a book and there isnt any extra's, because now i look forward to it. The things i like best about them is the "memorable quotes" and character descriptions and things like that. I think i like it, because the book is over so im looking for anything to make it last longer.
