    Am surprised that no one has started a thread on the newly released Google Books for iPad! :D

    It's AWESOME!!!

    I love the ability to view books in scanned mode, books in their original formatting, so to speak. It beats ePUB, because of that. Now, Google Books is my preferred eReader.

    Also tried the PDF file of a book(book in its scanned mode) in Goodreader. The performance there is not on par with Google Books. Goodreader used to be a VERY good PDF reader, but not any more with the latest updates.

    Two things I wish for:

    1. being able to bookmark in scanned mode

    2. showing info on the size of the downloaded book, especially if it is in the scanned format.

    I will keep a look out, I don't think it's found it's way to my store local yet.

    Whilst this is indeed great.

    I also hang my head in shame and dismay that, for the good and simplicity of the consumers, these companies cannot come together and offer just one marketplace for everyone with every reader to access.

    One day perhaps :)
