This looks like an interesting place with lots of discussion about our favourite slate, the iPad. I was among the first in Canada to receive my iPad and am the proud owner of the 64GB, 3GS, WiFi model. Like many others here I am frustrated with Apple's inability to bring content to their Canadian iBook store. I have been successfully buying books at other stores and transferring them to my iPad to read with the iBook reader (which I think is the best reader out there). If you buy non-ePub books, they can also be translated into ePub format by an excellent program called Calibre (non-DRMed books only, though). Of course, DRM can be removed in a variety of ways so is really useless to protect anyone and just annoys legitimate owners of books.
