[STARTUP] Booktracks brings immersive reading to tablets

New startup Booktracks launched today.  Their goal –  to transform the reading experience  through the addition of soundtracks and music.  Essentially what the technology does is add a movie-like experience through synchronized sound effects and background music immersing the reader into the story.  For example, you may be reading Bright Lights Big City and enter into a McInerny’esque party and hear noise at the Odeon with some subtle 80’s music playing in the background..  Some titles are already available via the Booktrack Bookshelf and on iTunes.
