    Being a eReader is something the hapless Ipad is actually good at.

    I have read 4 books on my iPad since I bought it 10 days ago and I LOVE IT. It really beats hard copy books and IMHO it makes the Kindle look pretty suckie. I read at night a lot and the back lit screen is perfect for that.

  • Is iPad limited to Apple iBooks

    Can the iPad be used with the Kindle app to shop for books in Amazon also? I have a lot of Kindle books on my 1G Touch. If I upgrade to iPad or 4G Touch, I want to bring them with me.

      @edmetric Yes. Simply download the Kindle app to your iPad or 4G Touch, then link the app to your Kindle account. All of your purhases will be available.

    Are you aware of any app that a struggling reader could tap on the word and receive an audible version of the word. I am not looking to hear the whole book just words when a child is stuck.
    thanks
