From paper book to iPad book is a huge step in progress. This technology will not only have an impact on the publishing and printing industry but on book stores and paper and magazine vendors. My favorite is that the forests of the world will be preserved, as just think of how much less paper the world will need. Downloadable books are indeed the answer to saving the forests.

Apple, the manufacturer of the iPad, has brought eReader books to the screen. Once you have read a book on the multi-touch screen you will not likely be buying paper backs again. You can download e books by means of the iBook app onto you iPad. Your eBook download can be done instantly once you have made a choice of the books you want. You can buy an eBook online or get many of them free on various websites. MyPadMedia.com is one of these.
Publishers are not being left behind as they are all clamoring to get their books as downloadable eBooks. Literally thousands of e books from all categories are available online. The big rush is now to get textbooks for colleges and universities on iPad. This is not only an advanced way for students to utilize their textbooks, but is a back saver for them as well. Just think, no more lugging a bag full of books around with you on campus, you will only have to have your slim iPad tucked under your arm.
The user friendly iPad turns non readers into readers. You can navigate from one page to the next by the touch of a button. You can bookmark your page and even note and highlight it. Reading on a screen is far more enjoyable than on paper pages as you can adjust the font size and the lighting to suit you. The folds in the carrying case are in just the right places so that it can become a stand for your iPad. Now you will not have to rest it on your stomach while reading.
