Since there is an ibooks for ipad and iphone there isn't a reason to get this........unless you don't have an ipad.
Well, it depends on your preferences. My iPad has a bright and beautiful screen and it's great for many things, but for reading eBooks, I must admit that an eInk display is more comfortable to look at. eReaders are also smaller and lighter, and their battery life is longer.
Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.
How could anyone forget that the AmazonKindle is cheaper making it better than the ipad's ibooks by a landslide.
