    Microsoft is hiring staff to work on an interactive reading app for Windows, it has been revealed.

    According to a job advert spotted by LiveSino, the firm is designing a "groundbreaking interactive reading app on Windows, which incorporates books, magazines, and comics".

    The app is being developed by the team behind Xbox Music and Xbox Video, leading to speculation that it could feature on the Xbox One and Xbox 360.

    Microsoft is also developing a separate "Office Reader" app for Windows, according to The Verge.

    The company invested $300 million into the eBook division of Barnes & Noble in 2012.

    Microsoft said that it wanted to bring together the expertise of both companies to "accelerate the transition" from physical books to e-reading.
