I usually keep iBooks just to see what the free books are like. You can find great gems in there. And even done some classics. It’s perfect for finding out your interests or if you’re like me and always looking for something new to read. Just easy and at your fingertips

I don’t really use this app much, when I do it doesn’t cause too much trouble. Sometimes it does because my page is very irritating but normally I read paperback books for school. Sometimes it’s not always a bit of ice on you so it’s easier to just use the paperback.

Good to store my books has great features to save your place or take notes on a page. Allows you to change the font size and brightness. Always available which makes it a very reliable app. I recommend this to all my family and friends.

I started using this app to read to my daughter on the road and I just fell in love with it. There is a pretty wide array of free books and it makes life easier having them right on your phone. I'd definitely recommend it!

I like having access to all my ebooks in one location, right on my phone or iPad. It’s very easy to buy additional books and gave them download to the app as well. The app is pretty reliable. I would recommend to others.

I may be somewhat old fashioned, but it’s hard to beat reading the hard copy version of a good book. Except I love iBooks because I have my library with me at all times and I can search for a new read anytime, anywhere

I love books and I prefer to read a book I can physically flip pages with. However this app offers me the chance to travel light and the chance to read my books anywhere. I enjoy the night and day feature tremendously!

This has been a life saver in terms of saving PDFs, books, and classwork! I first started using iBooks when I starting reading 50 Shades of Grey! After that I realized exactly how useful this app is.
