With the addition of the OverDrive Media Console to the App Store (and a request from one of our readers), we felt this AppGuide was due for an update. And of course, with the arrival of the iPad 2 and all the new iPad owners out there, more and more people are reading books on the iPad. Luckily there are many wonderful options for reading on the iPad. Actually, most of these apps are universal, so if you have an iPhone or iPod touch (in addition to or instead of an iPad) and you like to read, you will definitely find this AppGuide useful.
If the presence of DRM would allow you to legally get NYT bestsellers for free or read them for only $0.99, wouldn't you supprt that? The fact that Apple is using FairPlay to protect eBooks may make that possible.
