Each of the two vehicles for the transmission of book-length text, namely the e-book and the printed codex book (p-book) have their advantages. Rather than choosing one over the other or arguing the merits of each we explore in this session the creation of hybrid books that combine the e-book and the p-book. We will consider hypertexted books and books that contain images, videos, audios and text so that some day one will not have to decided whether to read the book or watch the movie because there will be a format that contains them both.
