    New iPad user here (wonderful device). I haven't been able to yet find how large the book files are. I can see the file size on every other app before downloading but not the books. I'm on a pretty small daily download limit and need to know approximately how many books I can download. Many thanks.

    Books are really not that big unless they are illustrated. The bible is less than 2MB. Opening a web page with a few pictures would probably eat up more of your download allowance than a regular book.

    Yep - Meg to Meg 1/2 is a good average. Even on a 16 Pad you will plenty of room to store your ibooks.

    Tons and Tons!

    Consider that a Kindle 2 that comes with 2 Gig of Ram can hold approximately 1,600 books, just imagine how many ebooks you could put on your iPad.;)
