If I download a book from Amazon, it will show up on the Kindle App. Below the "Buy now with 1-Click" button, you'll see an option below it that will say where to deliver it to. I have it set up for my iPad. I can't remember how I got my iPad registered with my account, I think it's with the "register a new kindle" on that same drop down box. After I click on the buy button, when into my kindle app the book appears. It's like magic! Am I the only one that still gets amazed by this technology?
LOL .. no I am too .. one minute not there & the next it is there


If I purchase a book from iBooks (which is the iTunes version for books), then they will download there. You don't have to be finished reading a book to download more of them. I've purchased several at a time. There are also free books available on iBooks, mostly classics. I've downloaded some Jane Austen and Charles Dickens that I would like to read someday. I also downloaded most of the Anne of Green Gables series ;) In the top left corner above the bookshelf there is an option for Store. Just click on that and go from there. I'm sure you already have an iTunes account, it uses the info from there to make the purchase so it will ask you for your password.
OK .. Yes I have d/l one & it went to my Kindle app.
Did see the store in the ibooks as well .. ty ;)

The books can either be read one page, or double sided, it all depends on how you hold the iPad. If it's vertical, you get one page, if you make it horizontal you'll get the double sided. That can be a bit of pain when I'm lying in bed and have it between the two, it keeps swapping back and forth if I move a little. I do like that I have a stand for my iPad so if I'm eating lunch, I can prop it up in front of me.
I see that now also .. what kind of stand do you have?
I still don't know how to add books to the ibooks/shelves ..
And can't figure out how to add the book I am reading now to the ireaditnow.
Thanks for all yoru help :)

I read in Reader's Digest about which to choose ... since I would just want to read, I would get the basic Kindle.

I voted 'other'

So I wonder if I can d/l the Kindle app from Amazon?
I know you don't know but am thinking/talking aloud

OK, go to your app store on your ipad 2 and that's where you d/l the amazon and the kindle app.

Thanks Julie,
Will sure do that :)

i'm having problems with the wifi here, it takes forever before the books download. marina said it's because we are in a low spot.
