    is it possible to somehow put Kindle books on ipad?
    I have 100's of kindle books on my pc & was wondering if there was some way to send them? If so how?
    Ive heard of people using ipad as an ereader but maybe they had to buy new books from somewhere?
    Im also wondering if such a thing is a good idea anyway re eye strain? I know I get a sore head if I read too much text on a computer screen!

    Thanks

    As AQ_OC said, all you have to do is download the Kindle App. Other solutions are iBooks, nook, kobo, etc.
    You can eRead if you want. I find it difficult and don't do it often because using a screen too long hurts my eyes, a real book is easier for me. I could probably do it on an eInk display however.

    Agreed, the Kindle app is the best, it's free as well.

    It used to give me headaches, until I realized it wasn't the screen. It was the ambient light. There is a strong tendency to read in a dark room when using a lit screen, but the contrast is hard on the eyes. Try to minimize the difference in lighting, either by turning on some lights or dimming the iPad screen. Might not work for you, but it you never know.

    I use the night theme on iBooks. White text on black. Much easier on the eyes.

    When you buy a Kindle edition of a book on Amazon, can you make it appear in iBooks somehow (so without having the Kindle app) ?

    No, it can't appear in iBooks, only the kindle app, which is free in the AppStore.
