The Rocket eBook was an early popular e-book reader. It was manufactured by NuvoMedia until 2000, when it was purchased by Gemstar-TV Guide International.[1]

Rocket-compatible e-books were sold through the websites of Barnes & Noble as well as Powell's Bookstore.[2]

After purchasing NuvoMedia (and merging them with SoftBook Press, Inc.), Gemstar released an updated eBook Reader called the RCA eBook Reader.[1]
