This paper suggests a framework for the book evolution in ubiquitous computing age. Based on the review of the academic researches and industrial development, we suggest the three dimensions of the evolution of books: digitalization, augmentation, and hypermediation. Based on the framework, we suggest three research and business development directions: 1) Open Hypermediation, 2) e-Book Augmentation, and 3) Mobile-Device Based Augmentation.
