BookRix is a new site that appears to let you very easily upload a document which is then turned into an embeddable virtual book.
I use the word “appears” because I really haven’t had time to try it out yet. It does look easy-to-use, and the final product has a neat interface that I think students would like. The site also seems to have a fairly strict code on content suitability. In addition, you can upload audio books, though I haven’t had time to see if you can record directly on the site or if you have to upload your own mp3 recording.
It’s worth checking out further, but I’m not ready to add it to The Best Places Where Students Can Write For An “Authentic Audience”.
If you get a chance to try it out, please let me know what you think.
