    I don't have an Ipad and I would like to know if you can search for a specific book from Istore without having an Ipad? For example, it's very easy to know if there is a specific book for the Kindle and the Nook by going to their web sites, but i can't find a similar site for Ipad.

    Link/s appreciated.

    First of all, welcome to the forum!

    Unfortunately, buying books from Apple can only be done on an Apple mobile device (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad). There was a rumor at one time that Apple was working on a desktop app, but so far, it is still just a rumor.

    ok thanks

    Thanks for the answer which I suspected. The reason I asked is that I wrote an ebook and 'published' it on Smashwords.com and they send it to all the various I stores. I can see it on the desktop ap for the nook and the kindle etc but I don't have a clue how it looks (format wise) on Ibooks, or if it's even there, for sure.

    Thanks again Brad. Indie e-publishing is in its infancy right now and it doesn't help that there are so many different formats. I would guess that in a few years, or maybe less, writers will be able to e-publish, and readers will be able to download, across one simple platform.

    You need to download "iBooks" from the app store and then launch it.

    Then click on "store" in the far left hand corner
