    I have an IPAD 2 that I got back in January. As I understand it I can use the IPAD as a reader similar to a Kindle.

    Does anyone know how I do this? Not realy computer savy so not real sure how to do this.

    Thanks

    There are two main sources for buying books and other content on the iPad.

    1. iBooks: Go to the app store and download the free iBooks app. It will allow you to buy, download and read content from the apple bookstore like you would buy music.

    2. Kindle Reader: Download the kindle app from the app store and you buy your books on Amazon from their "kindle store" and can read them on your iPad.


    There is no reason not to have both applications and simply buy the book from whichever source has the best price.

    Definitely get the iBooks app. I like that you can choose a few different themes. I like the Night theme.
