I don't read that many books outside school but this is still a nice addition.
There is no shortage of Ebook readers on the iPhone.
Adding one more won't help Apple, and won't help the users.
Shovelware at best.
icebike, yeah, that's why they've already sold 600,000 books in 5 days. It's not just another reader. I work for a large book company and they've got everyone but Amazon looking for answers. Amazon's reader runs on the iPhone and the iPad. It will slow Kindle hardware sales, but won't significantly hurt Kindle book sales.
thats only 2 per user.
And I dont for one minute believe it will be read anywhere. It will be read on any Apple Ecosystem device. Thats not Anywher.
