It's Alive! Animated books at Stroki you must see

As always, I found out almost by accident that the new Stroki reader supports animation in books. The vicious circle of "publishers don't make animated books because services don't support them, and services don't develop such functionality because publishers don't have such books" had to be broken. But Stroki is not afraid of experimentation, so we started animating books from the Originals catalog, i.e. from our own service's publisher.

If you think animation is only appropriate for children's books, where ideally everything should be shining, jumping and whistling, I'll argue with you. When you have good ideas and taste, you can add animation to both classics and current top fiction, well, and YA readers seem to be more likely to wonder why their favorite books weren't animated before.

As of today, Stroki's catalog has over fifty lively books in all genres, and that's just the beginning. Here are just a few of last weeks new releases, read on and check them out:

  1. La Bibliothèque des bienheureux — Cali Keys (Russian edition)

  2. New Wonders from the Old Chest — Irina Lake

  3. Moscow Channel — Roman Kanushkin

  4. After-School Detectives 3. The Mysterious Kidnapping at the Home for the Elderly — Enrique Carlos Martín (Russian edition)

I see a variety of reactions to animated books (one coworker even almost fell off his chair), but I haven't met any negative ones yet. But still waiting for the guardians of the traditional values of e-books, I really want to know their arguments why books should not be alive.
