Augmented e-books provide the reader with a better quality of experience (QoE) by enriching the e-books with multimedia content and interactive elements. In the multimedia field, an improve in QoE has been performed by the use of sensory effects, creating the so-called mulsemedia applications. In this paper, it is considered that e-books augmented with mulsemedia content influence the reader perception of the history environment, besides improving its QoE. It is presented a mulsemedia setup with light, wind and audio effects, which are synchronized with a written history. Among other discoveries, the collected data suggest that such elements have a more significant influence on the reader when the environment description tend to be vague, whereas in scenes whose details are precisely described this influence is rather minored.
