E-book UI That Lets You Flip Pages Like a Real Book

A pretty cool interface that goes just beyond a simple page turning animation. Fairly cool for touch screen tablets like the Ipad but not so much for the Kindle. It lets you ‘thumb’ through your digital book just as you would a physical one, so you can tactilely navigate through an e-book in the same intuitive way we do with paper pages.

So what would a genuinely “intuitive” navigation scheme for e-books look and feel like? Something familiar enough to be easy–which is where a touch of skeuomorphism comes in handy–but “alien” enough to not send us down blind alleys of preconceived notions that no longer apply.
