The e-book reader has been key to the development and introduction of portable digital reading devices in the past. Unfortunately, the e-book concept has become stagnant and unremarkable. Conversely, video games, cell phones, and portable digital media devices have witnessed revolutionary advancements, from the introduction of the Apple iPhone, introducing smartphones to telecommunications, to World of Warcraft, bringing massive online multiplayer experiences to the public. In order for e-books to remain relevant to the changing user base, the e-book reader must undergo reconceptualization. This paper will examine the history and current state of electronic reading devices, then move on to discuss new methods with which further improvements can be made to the future of the book.
