Enhanced Game of Thrones (UK Only)

Oh, I hope the US publisher is looking into this. Also, I'd love it if iBooks had a feature that allowed you to "upgrade to the enhanced version" if you've already bought the non-enhanced.

That's really neat! I would hate to read off a backlit screen, but the interactive map alone is pretty wicked.

All my reading is backlit.

Lou-
Thanks for posting, I've been talking with several people about the need for fantasy publishers to catch up with the technology and create interactive maps, that highlight location, famous battles and the like. Very cool, thanks for posting.

Wow! I already own the entire series in hardcover and audio, but I'd be willing to buy it again to have interactive maps! Dave Wolverton/Farland is really pushing enhanced books right now. Here's hoping it catches on!

I can't wait until this sort of things is easier to implement for authors who aren't GRRM status only.
