English abstract
E-books are not yet fully established on the Swedish book market. A frequently discussed theory is that this might be because of a loss in the reading experience. This thesis has the primary purpose to investigate whether the reading experience from E-books differs from the experience of reading a traditional book in paper. The book used for comparation is a poetry collection named Rakel delat med tio. I have designed the cover and the inlay of this book and as a part of the thesis the working progress is described. The comparison of the two booktypes was made through a randomised controlled trial where one group read the E-book and another group read the traditional book. The respondents thereafter graded different emotions awaked by the reading. My result shows that the reading experience from Rakel delat med tio is less captivatingly when it is read as an E-book. This result indicates that reading poetry in a traditional book may generate more emotions compared to reading the same book as an E-book. Further, two aspects of the E-book has been considered. First, strengths and weaknesses of the E-book is discussed, and second, possible improvements for future E-books are suggested.
