I'm reading my first book on our new ipad using the ibook application. It is too cool. I'm in love with paper books, so I wasn't sure how I would feel about reading a book on a screen. It's actually very easy to use, and I have free access to tons of books that are under public domain. In seconds, I can have a book delivered to the ipad and start reading. My first choice is a free classic by Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray. How had I not read this before? It is a masterpiece! I've been using the bookmark option on ipad which allows me to highlight the tons of witty and thoughtful lines throughout this book. I have to highlight something on nearly every page because the book is full of lines that I find hilarious or that make me think. I am completely sold on the idea of reading books via the ipad, and whether you have an ipad or not please pick up a copy of this amazing tale by Oscar Wilde. It's a fun read no matter what version.
