Will iBooks coming to Mavericks see you reading more from Apple's book store? [Poll]

Will iBooks coming to Mavericks see you reading more from Apple's book store?

Apple's iBooks is finally coming to the desktop with OS X Mavericks, but will it see you reading more from the iBook Store? iBooks has been with us since the introduction of the iPad back in 2010, and some 3 and a half years later it finally migrates across to OS X. As we've come to expect from Apple, iBooks on the Mac will integrate seamlessly with your iOS device, mirroring your position, highlights, bookmarks and such to all your devices through iCloud. It sounds great, especially for those who use the textbooks a lot, providing more screen real estate to look at them than on your iPad.

In the age of iCloud, does Apple need to maintain a monstrous iTunes?

Breaking up iTunes is Peter Cohen's number one want for OS X 10.9. He's probably not alone on that front, I myself went as far as saying I'd love to see the Podcasts app broken away from iTunes and released as a stand alone as on iOS. On their iOS devices, Apple has made the iTunes experience so much better than on the desktop, and it's been this way for a long time. And, with iCloud at their disposal, Apple could easily strip apart the "bloated, unwieldy mess" that is the current iTunes desktop experience.
