    There are 50 ebooks for children from not-for-profit program Child Writes, and will be updated bi-monthly. All of the ebooks on the iPad are written and illustrated by primary school-aged children.

    Jetstar has said that books will soon be available for adults as it works on a sourcing agreement with publishers.
