Found this via Paranormal Bites, who grabbed it from USA Today, and since it fits right in with our Dracula Event I thought I'd share:
A new version of Bram Stoker's vampire classic is poised to emerge on the Apple iPad next week ($4.99). Dracula: The Official Stoker Family Edition is a Halloween surprise that mixes words, music and video-game-like features.

I think this is a really cool idea because it will bring a classic story to a new generation. Is Dracula the best vampire story out there? Probably not. It isn't the easiest book to get through because it's told in a completely different style than we are currently used to. But the book is definitely worth reading since most credit Stoker with bringing vampires into mainstream fiction and his story has since been reworked numerous times. I plan on discussing this subject more towards the end of the month but I would love to hear what you think.
What do you think about this new interactive iPad trend? Does this format appeal to you? Are you more inclined to read Dracula now that it has been revamped (pun intended)... again.
