if:book HOTBOOK launched futureofthebook.org.uk/index.php/hotbook/ The HOTBOOK is a ground breaking and free digital resource created by if:book. The HOTBOOK aims to ignite a passion for literature (past, present and future) by introducing and exploring fragments of great works and presenting them in a way that will excite an audience that is more at ease with an electronic game or gadget than a book and with people who spend time social networking rather than reading.
