Random House publications now available on iBooks

As rumored, it looks like Random House -- the last big publisher hold-out -- now has books available in Apple's iBooks library. Or as Chad put it when he woke us all up at the crack of dawn this morning:

Born to Run from Christopher McDougall and Tim Ferris's books can now be downloaded!!! Whoot!

Is this part of the iPad 2 event announcement later today? Seems a bit of a coincidence timing wise if not... Either way, anyone want to recommend some other good Random House books to check out?

Last major holdout, Random House, coming to iBooks?

Random House will be adopting the Apple and iBooks-centric 70/30 "agency model" tomorrow, the day before Apple's iPad 2 event on Wednesday.

"The agency model guarantees a higher margin for retailers than did our previous sales terms," Random House said in a statement. "We are making this change both as an investment in the successful digital transition of our existing partners and in order to give us the opportunity to forge new retail relationships."

Coincidence or a sign the iBooks catalog might soon be a little less sparse?
