Wolf Hall Enhanced
I've downloaded the Enhanced Edition of Wolf Hall. I'm in the middle of reading the print edition - and I'm loving it. So having the ebook on my phone will help me complete the book faster (not that I need to find out what happens in the end). The Enhanced Edition comes with some video and extra text. If I wasn't interesting in a bit of app experimentation I don't think I'd be paying the extra $5 bucks for the enhancements. It is also kind of chunky at 20 megabytes. Reading the offer didn't convince me of the value. I never watch the extras on a DVD and suspect most people don't. Maybe after I've experienced the enhancements I'll feel differently, but I don't think publishers are making a convincing offer as yet. I'll keep you posted.
