The idea - to make a stand with the e-book ad cards.


Each that card is a physical tangible advertising of some e-book. E-book ad card contains QR code and the annotation of the e-book.

You can take the card with you for free, to give to someone, or just download e-book by QR-code.

Stand with such cards can be placed on Fairs as well as in bookstores. This is the easiest and cheapest way to make e-book tangible
