Reading on the iPad

Hi, it's Derek again and today I will be telling you the benefits of reading a book on the iPad app iBooks.

Now as you may know you are able to download the app iBooks on your iPad to start creating your very own digital library. As far as I can tell you can find quite a few books on the iBook Store. Including authors such as Christopher Paolini, J.R.R Tolkien, and Eion Colfer. The benefit of this store is that you do not have to have a library or a bookstore nearby. As long as you have an internet connection and some money on iTunes, you're all set. Instead of having to lug around a bag of books everywhere you can keep who knows how many on this iPad app.

But the only problem is that you cannot see well in the sun. Therefore you cannot take it outside on a sunny day and read unless you have some sort of shade.

A few perks of the app allows you to change the fonts, font size, and the color of the page (sepia, etc.). You can bookmark your page and leave it there and come back right where you were when you left off.

So the benefits are numerous but the fact that is very hard to see in the sun limits you to indoors or under a shady apple tree.
