Reading is one of my favorite pastimes. There's nothing better than unwinding at the end of the day and losing yourself in a good book.
With the advent of eBooks, reading has never been more convenient. Now, you can make the reading experience more entertaining with an app that turns eBooks interactive.
It's called Inkling and it's available for free on both iOS and Android.
These interactive eBooks are designed to help you learn, study and discover just about anything, whether it's for school, work, or play. Inkling's books cover everything from anatomy to photography and travel to cooking.
Anatomy titles include hundreds of hi-resolution diagrams that let you strip off the labels and test what you know.
Inkling's Lonely Planet Guides offer Foursquare-based location information along with live updates.
Food and drink books include instructional animations and videos to help you learn new skills in the kitchen. There are even 'For Dummies' selections that will teach you how to play the guitar or learn Java or CSS. You're able to download one free chapter to give it a try.
