iBooks on the Apple TV coming soon?

My iMac, which I use to sync the Apple TV, has been updated to iTunes 9.2. Now, under the Apple TV in the source list, it has a section for "Books".

Is this a sign of future iBooks integration with the Apple TV?

I think it means Audio Books.

You really would be willing to read a book on your TV screen?

That'd depend on how it's implemented.

Kwambus makes sense though, it probably is audio books. Shame.

I think such a feature would work well in a classroom or daycare type setting with children's books with lots of big illustrations.

Or maybe even older students with a teacher showing sections of a text book. An anatomy class might be a good example.

I'm sure other people can come up with some other ideas/situations.

I'm sure it would not be hard to implement, so I think Apple should enable such a feature.
