Books-A-Million adds new ebook reader App!

image

I love BAM bookstores, mainly because of the excellent discount racks where I often find great books for as low as a dollar. They also offer some really good in-store discounts. BAM has a large on-line ebook collection of course, but up until recently, you needed a Nook device to download books. Now they have a free iPhone reader that will let you read ePub books, PDF docs, and works with Adobe DRM content!

iBooks and Education

When Apple developed iBooks, the first thing that I thought of was how one app could revolutionize the education market. I imagined all the times I walked a mile across campus carrying 20 lbs. of books and thought what a miracle it could be to students around the world to be able to carry only an iPad.

If you have children, you appreciate entertainment that appeals to kids and grownups at the same time.  After all, if you have to sit through a movie, and pay full price, you might as well enjoy it too, on your own level.  The Penguins of Madagascar: Read & Play is an app (iPad only folks) that I found amusing as did my kids who are fans of the Nickelodeon show of the same name, based on those funny penguins and lemurs from the Madagascar movies.

Amazon scores with new app Windowshop but faces ire of Kindle fans

I’m a big fan of Amazon. Actually bought 1000% more ebooks from the Kindle store compared to the anaemic  shelves of the Ibook store. Price-wise, Amazon has consistently been cheaper than all the other major e-book retailers.
