The iPad is good for reading ebooks, and the Retina Display on the new iPad turns onscreen text into crisp pages that are great to read. Apple has iBooks for those locked into that ecosystem, but the Kindle ebook selection on Amazon is as big as anybody's.
The Kindle app makes it easy to keep track of even large libraries, and finding just the right book to read. Apple doesn't allow the Kindle app to access the Kindle bookstore directly, but it's easy to buy books using the iPad browser and have it pushed to the Kindle app. The next time you open the iPad Kindle app your purchases are sitting there waiting for you.
