    All kinds of things you can say in a book to have reader's participation

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by bookpro01, Feb 13, 2010.

    Can some one please share all the things you can write in a EBOOK to have the readers participate in. I know some of them are newsletter, polls, Rss feed, subscribe to channels (youtube or twitter), but what else are their?

    sorry, but i don't get what it is you're asking about... do you mean a 'how-to' book of some kind, that explains all those things?... or what?...

    how can readers 'participate' in that stuff while reading a book?...

    I am talking about an EBOOK that you can read on your PC or mac or linux computer.

    Do you mean like having some sort of online interactivity or something programmed into an e-book?

    [do note the n after the a there ;)]

    That doesn't really answer the question. She meant what manner of content. In other words, is it fiction, or a tutorial of some sort, or an inspirational text, or a book persuading readers to follow a life stratregy, etc?

    You are a writer. Your question needs to be expressed more clearly.

    It is a self-improvement guide.

    and E-book is just an electronic version of a book. Moby Dick for example can be found in Ebook format. I don't think a self improvment guide needs interaction like your suggesting. You can try putting exercises or 'try it yourself' type of things at the end of every major chapter but I think that's about as interactive as your going to get

    still don't get what you mean by 'participate in'... participate how, and for what reason?... to accomplish what?

    what kind of 'self-improvement' is your book aimed at helping?... physical?... emotional?... or professional of some kind?

    well what I just want to do is for the reader to give me an opinion what they thought about the book. So besides, polls, surveys, how else can I do that?

    edit: a minute or 2 of searching came up w/ something called an ebook editor. could be place to start

    if you're posting the e-book on a website, a 'comments' section is the best way... along with a well-crafted poll... sadly, many online polls are poorly done, leaving out important choices, not making much [if any] sense, and so on...

    you can also include an email address for personal feedback...
