Read an e-book more extensively, as BookTracks adds sound effects to your reading habit.

BookTrack is a start-up that publishes e-books with movie-like soundtracks. With Android support on its way, this new application is a Kindle-like e-book with music and sound effects that is now available for Apple’s iOS. The BookTrack is a stand-alone mobile application that plays scene-appropriate, cinematic-music while you read. Moreover, sound effects like creaking footsteps and crackling of the fireplace plays in particular parts of the paragraph. One interesting feature of BookTrack, meanwhile, is its ability sync sound changes depending on your reading speed.
