    Disappointing

    The idea of embedding media into text is wonderful, but not all media enhance the book. This Vook is only 17 pages long. The embedded media were not, as I'd supposed, videos of the movements of the sky. Rather, they are a video of a teacher in his study whirling a globe while he says what is in the text. And he's far from being a charismatic teacher. I was disgusted that B&N sold such a poor Vook for so much money. A 17 page book on Astronomy? What a joke.
