Abstract

A method of and a system and apparatus for presenting newspaper text to a reader in an electronic book format. The newspaper text is received in a digital format and sorted into display segments based on priorities assigned by the reader. One of the display segments is selected for display and is then displayed. Selection of a segment and displaying of the selected segment is repeated to display all the desired segments. Preferably, the reader assigns priorities to the display segments, for example based on subject matter or on sections of the newspaper text such as the sports section, the world news section, and the business section. Alternatively, priorities can be automatically assigned based on a particular reader's reading custom, as monitored by the apparatus. The newspaper text is then sorted and displayed based on the assigned priorities. The apparatus includes a processor, a program memory, a newspaper text memory, a priority memory, a display device, and input devices from receiving the newspaper text and for assigning priorities and controlling the display. The newspaper text input device can be a telephone, such as cellular telephone, for receiving the newspaper text from a global computer information network. If archived newspaper text is to be read, the input device can be a disk drive for reading the text from a computer disk. The system can transmit the newspaper text as a television signal to apparatus for displaying the newspaper text in an electronic book format.
