    Louis L'aMour books


    It is said that all his stories were written with actual geographical landmarks in mind. Would be cool to see a picture of those landmarks in his books. Or a short video of a bucking horse, branding or windstorm.

    What I used to do on my iPhone was if they were small enough... just email them to myself and it would load them in Safari (not the most ideal way). Then I stumbled across an app called GoodReader. Definitely worth the price!

    I'll use whichever app will display the book(s) I want from the vendor with the lowest price.

    Apple is using epub and although epub was built as a universal standard transferable across multiple devices they left out a requirement to either not use drm or standardize on one drm method. So, although epub is a standard, there are currently three separate drm schemes in use on epubs. There is the standard Adobe Adept drm, the ereader/B&N drm and lastly the new drm layer apple is using. The digital book business is still a mess which is why I typically buy in a format that allows me to strip the drm, however only for my personal use.

    I hope I'm not violating any forum rules, but for those interested in ebook applications of the ipad check out mobileread.com. I'm not affiliated with the forum, only a member, but it is a wealth of information on anything related to ebooks and ereaders.

    How about an eversion of the Potter novels with animated "pictures" and underling minor agent based AI to make characters in the "pictures" actually wander the between illustrations.

    Now there is gimic if ever there was one.

    That would be AWESOME! Images within the book come alive much like the newspapers in the movie! I love it!

    Yep, me too :)

    That is of course if the reader app is good and does not detract from the reading experience.
