    Getting iPad books in Canada?
    I was going to get an iPad this week & figured I'd check out what books are available on iTunes. I can't find the book store or any books available at all.
    Is there nothing available if you live in Canada? Or am I missing something?
    Peace & Grooviness!

    Specs:

    The Apple iBook store is only available from iOS devices, e.g. the iPad, iPhone, etc. It is not accessible from within iTunes. Don't ask me why.

    Not sure what all ya'll have available in Canada. If available, Amazon's Kindle, Barnes & Noble, Gutenberg, and a host of other places have books besides iBooks.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    You have to download the free iBooks app on your iPad FIRST. The Canadian selection isn't as big as the US selection, but there's plenty there.

    As Bob mentioned, the free Kindle app for iPad is another good one to have.
