BOOKS :: StoryMashups & LongReads == SmallDemons.com & Findings.com #futureofbooks ||

Two interesting ideas in new sites about reading:
smalldemons.com takes books, and everything in the books and repackages the details, the data(!), the characters, the locations, the activity so that they get mashed up with reality and with each other. A storyverse. A whole world of interlinking narrative!
http://www.smalldemons.com/

and findings.com is a really smart way of sharing copy that simply doesn't fit into 140 characters. You know, like a paragraph... Maybe even 140 words that tell you enough to know that you really want to read something. It's a nice idea and I hope it catches the imagination. As always will probably depend on how easy it becomes to integrate into readers. Extension? App?
