I read all my books via ebook now. I love that now matter how long I don’t read the book my spot is saved. I love the different adjustments you can make to the text like changing he font or the size of the font or night mode and even changing the way you view the book is great features

Love Apple iBooks. I like that I have access to books...always...since I have my phone with me...always. I don't find it to be glitchy. It's easy to use. You can highlight things and bookmark things which is nice. Sometimes the app store will have really great free books too!

I read books every day, and a lot of them have been through my phone. What I love about iBooks is that you can highlight certain parts of the book you’re reading and look back at the things you highlighted later. This is especially helpful with informational books!

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.

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 love electronic books. Apple iBooks is compatible with all ebooks and PDFs. It also has a library where you can purchase books. There are some good free books available once in a while too. It’s a good app to have!

They have great free books and yes I sound like cheap but they have great authors. They also do have audiobooks for those who are busy and don’t have the time to sit down and read. If you don’t have WiFi at home or are in the road you can download the book or audiobook!
