    I am new to the Apple world, but am looking forward to the new Ipad!!!
    Will the Ipad be able to either using ibook app or another app, be able to read non DRM epub books.

    Yes you will be able to add ePub books to your iBooks library if they DRM free. There are already ebook readers available on the iPhone/iPod Touch that allow you to add your own ePub books. I don't see why the developers wouldn't make an iPad version.

    EDIT: Here is more info:

    So are libraries going to be able to loan out drm library books for 2 weeks like they can regular books?

    Does anyone know any libraries that are already doing this?

    Ipad e-book reader

    I Love the project Gutenberg as my wife (chinese) and Me (French) find book for both with same app's (stanza) (we use the same iTunes account)

    But the 10 first pages is the weak point of Stanza :ipad-keyboard:

    An interesting thought. You have been listening to the iPad Possibities Podcast have?

    I think it is possible, however it's a question of whether or not libiraries have the resouces to investigate and implement those options. I'd be more interested in site license deals for e-text books at greatly reduced prices from print ones, with a deal for updates and support.

    They already do but it requires overdrive and right now only the Sony ereaders have it. I've been waiting for an overdrive iphone app for awhile now. I read there was one in the works but who knows when.
