Penguin CEO Unveils Demo for Apple iPad Digital Books

As the rumored ship date for the Apple iPad nears, digital book fans got a closer look at the future of the enhanced eBook recently. Our digitally-obsessed sibling eBookNewser has more on the new kind of reading experience demonstrated in the video above.

Here’s an excerpt: “As we get closer to iPad launch, we’re beginning to see more and more content specifically designed for the device’s functionality.
