This weekend I was thinking about books and ebooks and had the idea of putting ebooks on a Roku channel. I did a few experiments with scanned PDF files on the television. I actually kind of liked it! HD televisions are pretty high-resolution these days, so you can actually read text. Then I asked my wife, and she HATED it.
What do you think? Would reading ebooks on the television be hideous or fabulous? What about a combination of text and voice-over reading?
There was some discussion of it a couple of years ago, but the thread went south really quickly: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=34213 I think it would lend itself more to digital comics than general e-books (also discussed previously: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=25214), but it seems there's at least some level of interest.
