I just recently made the switch to iBooks (from Stanza) on my 2G iPod touch. Not a permanent switch, but at least to give iBooks a go. There is a great selection of free material available, and finding it is a cinch. Kaplan has teamed up with Apple to make a bunch of study and reference ebooks available gratis for the back-to-school season. Go here on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch (which links directly into iBooks library) to get these free titles... Promotion dates and more info below...
"To kick off the back-to-school season Kaplan Publishing is offering more than 90 book titles as free downloads exclusively on the iBookstore until August 30th and then 20 free titles from August 31st until Sept. 6th. These titles would normally cost a student hundreds of dollars, but now they can download them for free!"
"The promotion is a cooperative effort between Kaplan and Apple, and was created to bring attention to what Kaplan is doing with the eBook format, and we also wanted to create a risk-free situation for those who have not tried ebooks yet."
