Since more and more people are reading books on
with significant audio capabilities, the opportunity exists
add multimedia capabilities, especially mood
enhancement via music and sound, to
the book reading experience.
Multiple approaches can work here, from genre and
categorization, e.g. if the book is a mediaval historical
novel you could play Gregorian chants to word frequency
influencing song or even sound selection e.g. it was a
dark and stormy night, to automatically playing a
soundtrack if a movie version of
the book is available (while indexing to scenes), to of
course purposefully created music to accompany a
particular piece of literature.
