Since purchasing my iPad several months ago I have been spending more time reading E-books than I did on my Nook. I have found that the larger screen on the iPad makes for a more pleasurable reading experience. I have purchased several books and a couple of Apps that I think are worth mentioning. I have found that having all of the reading apps makes it possible to get the best price and find the best selections of E-books. So I use the Kindle, Nook, Ebook, and iBook apps. I find that the Kindle store has the widest selection of books, and that the iBook app is great for viewing downloaded PDFs and other documents that you find on the net. Although there are tons of out of print books that you can find online, such as those on the Internet Archive, there are also some good deals on purchased books as well. Below are a few of those I have purchased.
