Vook Books a $5.75 Million Series A roundFriday, January 21, 2011, 10:19 AM ET|Posted by Will Richmond(Friday update #5) Vook, which publishes digital versions of books, featuring video, images and social sharing alongside the text, announced a $5.75 million Series A round this week from VantagePoint Venture Partners and Floodgate. When I spoke to Vook's founder Brad Inman last June I came away very impressed with his vision for enhancing traditional books with multimedia in thoughtful, innovative ways. Vooks are a perfect fit for the burgeoning universe of e-readers and tablets like the iPad and Samsung Tab. They key for Vook is generating awareness and demand for its new format. Partnerships will be critical.
