TextVook, Vook's newest series of animated eBooks, lets readers get smart quickly about a variety of popular topics, such as history, science, music, economics and law.

TextVooks performed well in Amazon's history category for eBooks. Twenty-one titles cracked the top 100 eBook best-sellers, including "World War II: The Animated TextVook," "History of the Middle Ages 101: The TextVook," and "Middle East History 101: The TextVook." In April, more than 50 TextVooks debuted in the Kindle Store and Kindle App, as well as the iTunes App Store, iBookstore and NOOK Book Store.

"The massive amounts of downloads demonstrate that Vook is well-positioned to market and distribute eBooks at scale. Using our technology, we created a robust catalog of titles," said Brad Inman, chief executive officer of Vook.

"We look forward to helping our partners do the same with their libraries of content."

TextVooks can be enjoyed by anyone wanting to learn on the go and on their devices, and for teachers seeking new ways to light up their classrooms. Educational institutions can purchase discounted Vooks in bulk through the App Store Volume Purchase Program or by directly contacting Vook.
