The latest crop of eBooks are great for reading text, but what if one wanted to cook a meal or fix a leaky faucet and actually watch how it's done, step-by-step? It couldn't be done. But with miBooks it can.

A recent review called miBooks eBooks on steroids.

miBooks successfully expand the eBook category beyond just text and at a fraction of the cost – the miBook multimedia player costs under $100. Leading retailers, including Best Buy, offer the miBook player and titles.

While one can view text on a “traditional” eBook reader, the sleek, portable 7” miBook player changes the game by providing an enhanced experience with video and audio content. Imagine cooking a recipe not by reading instructions but by watching a chef actually prepare it, step-by-step. Unsure how to mince an onion? Just watch. That’s a big change from traditional cookbooks that can leave a fledgling cook stranded with a bunch of words.

miBooks are highly interactive, pausing, for example, after each step of a recipe so users can cook at their own pace. The new books even suggest recipes based on a home cook’s preference for main ingredient, cooking method, and available time.

Aside from cooking, miBooks also help with parenting, home repairs, projects, decorating, gardening and organizing. In production are miBooks on pet care, crafts, musical instruments, technology and travel. miBooks are available on memory cards and are produced in partnership with popular TV networks like Food Network, HGTV and Parents TV, and leading book publishers and authors.

Users can view their own content on the miBook player, too. It supports all popular photo, video, and music formats. A USB cable is included to facilitate transfers.

The miBook player has a suggested retail price of $69.95, and a bundled pack with two cooking titles and the player is $89.95. Additional miBook titles are $19.95 each.
