In this paper we describe The Reading Glove: a non-linear adaptive tangible narrative system in which interactors piece together a narrative puzzle by interacting with a collection of physical artifacts. The Reading Glove uses an adaptive system to assist the reader in making sense of the complicated web of narrative information.
