second reading

Random House has announced that it is hosting a virtual exhibition about e-books and e-book readers in social networking site Second Life to coincide with the launch of the Sony Reader.

Kicking off today at Random House's virtual building on the Elysian Island it will feature a video of Paper Trails author Mandy Haggith, a message board for visitors where they can leave feedback and a competition to win the Sony device. New content and features will be added throughout the autumn.

"The exhibition will provide visitors with information and user feedback about the new reading devices and e-book formats available, and allows us to target an early-adopter audience with our own exciting e-book lists," said Fionnuala Duggan, director of Random House Group Digital.

The if:book group meets at the first life Random House on Monday - it's fully booked but we're planning a follow-up on 14th Oct. Details of the venue to be confirmed soon, but we can reveal now that it will probably take place in boring old reality.
