I thought the iBook Store was supposed to be available to download in the App Store but I can't find it.

I had the App. I meant I couldn't find where in the App you could visit the store to buy ebooks. It seems that you have to go into the AppStore, rather than from within the iBooks.

Certain ebook apps I could mention allow purchase from within the App

Anyway, I found it now thanks. Still not much of a choice. Kindle has loads more than that. So has B&N and eReader. Wake up Apple - it is a good app and a good interface, let down by the poor choice of material so far.

You buy books directly from iBooks. There's a button in the upper right that says "Store" when you're viewing your bookshelf.

As for poor choices, that's subjective as I have been to get anything I pretty much wanted from the iBooks store. I also had a Kindle, and generally I haven't found something on one I couldn't get on the other.
