Heads up, Apple iBooks app is live!

Well, just in time for tomorrow, the Apple iBook app is live and available for the Apple App Store. Between iBooks, Kindle, B&N Ereader, Stanza, Ereader, and the other ebook apps available for the iPhone and iPod Touch, it looks like the Apple iPad will have plenty of e-book readers happy to have ALL of their e-book content at their fingertips.

About the iBooks app, the features include:

– Complimentary copy of Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne
– Read a free sample of any book on the iBookstore
– Change font size, pick from five different included type faces
– Highlight your favorite passages with the built-in bookmarking feature
– Accessibility features such as speaking words on a given page

Just remember though, this app is for the iPad ONLY.  The rest of us have to do without for now.
