Book publisher Bloomsbury is planning digital editions of its books for the iPad, reports “The Guardian” (http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2010/mar/30/bloomsbury-books-harry-potter).
“It has not come to the UK yet, so that is a piece of business yet to happen, but I can certainly say that the iPad looks like a very exciting platform indeed,” Bloomsbury CEO Nigel Newton told the publication. “Obviously it is the most important development in ebooks in recent months, so we will certainly be talking to Apple.”
The iPad will come with an iBookstore app. will feature books from major and independent publishers. The free iBooks app lets you buy books from the iBookstore. Once you’ve bought a book, it’s displayed on your Bookshelf. Just tap it to start reading.
