BOOKS IN EASY-TO-USE, PAGE-TURNING form have been around since the second century or so. But now electronic books are wooing many people away from the world of ink, paper, and tiny clip-on book lights. Amazon’s Kindle Fire, Barnes & Noble’s Nook, and Sony’s Reader are among the big names in the ebook playground, but the iPad is right in there kicking it up as well.

With its high-resolution color touchscreen, the iPad takes the ebook experience to a new level. True, the Kindle Fire and Nook have color screens and the Fire is dramatically cheaper, but the iPad’s big bright display makes books, newspapers, and magazines look amazing.
