Change the iBooks reading font
The iPad mini lacks the Retina Display of its bigger sibling which can make reading ebooks less enjoyable. That's a shame as the smaller size of the iPad mini is perfect for reading books.
The book reading playing field can be leveled by simply setting the font in iBooks to a cleaner font. Open up the fonts menu at the top right of the screen and test the different fonts to see which appeals to you. I find the Seravek font to look great on the iPad mini and recommend giving it a look.
Hat tip to @treestman for pointing out how nice this font looks in iBooks.
If you use the Kindle app for reading books instead of iBooks check the next tip to make that better.
Change the Kindle font and line spacing
If you use the Kindle app instead of iBooks you can make reading books a joy on the iPad mini. Open up the fonts menu at the top right of the Kindle app screen and set the font to Helvetica which is much better than the default font.
You may want to also set the line spacing to the tightest setting on the left which displays the most content on each page no matter how big the font.
The iPad mini has a decent camera but not many will use it since it's too big for comfortable camera use. If you also use an iPhone you may want to buy and install the iPhoto app on your iPad mini.
This app works with iPhoto on the Mac for those who use it and also works great with the Photo Stream on the iPhone. It has a solid photo editor that turns any photo taken into a work of art. Well, it can make them better than they were before.
