    Hi all,

    Just got an ipad2. I am not much of a reader but now I am starting to like reading on the ipad2.

    I like to get some recommendation on good books. If possible some free ones either for the kindle or the ibook apps.

    Must read
    Fiction
    Romance
    Thriller
    Vampire
    Short stories

    Any other suggestion

    Well, if you're going for free, Kipling is one of my favorite public domain authors.

    The Jungle Book
    The Second Jungle Book
    Capatians Courageous
    Kim

    If you like Science Fiction or Fantasy (even though you did not list it) Baen.com has quite a few free books. No junk there either. It a selection of very good authors.

    If you feel like learning how to develop your own apps you can do so for free. Go to iTunes on your iPad, click on 'iTunesU' at the bottom right hand side, select 'Universities and Colleges', then scroll to Stanford. Scroll right through the courses and you'll find a two-part, 25 lectures per part, course on programming iPad apps. It's free and, by the end of the course, you'll be able to program some simple apps yourself. It's a great resource from one of the best Universities in the world.

    Current publications are unlikely to be free - unless they're commercially orientated - for example, the iPad User Guide. The majority of current fiction books will only be available through iBooks, Kindle etc since the authors rely on this source of revenue for their income and livelyhood.

    If you mean free classics, read Dracula by Bram Stoker and Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.
    A good free scifi series is by Lalonde, I think it's called Spinward Fringe.
