Hi, I currently own a 1st gen 16Gb iPad and have had it since last October. I love it and it is probably my favorite gadget I have ever owned. However, I am looking more into the subject of eBooks on it. I currently have and use the Amazon Kindle app, but have also looked at some samples in iBooks. I read an entire book, inside, on the Kindle app and thought it was a good experience. I loved the highlighting feature. I have yet to buy a book from iBooks because of the possiblity of getting a Kindle. However, I recently purchased an iPhone 4 and can now sync iBooks on that. Essentially, I'm trying to find a single eBook reading setup. I don't read much...currently. I expect that to increase, but lets be honest, we all make goals like that. What my question is, based on my experience and your experiences, should I continue to purchase books on the Kindle platform (and get a Kindle 3 *in addition to my iPad* or switch exclusivley to the native iBooks platform? Due to my classes I am in, I will be using my iPad more than my MacBook Pro; however, with reading, I am wondering if having a Kindle *in addition* to a iPad is a commonality? I "know" they are different devices, but they both do the same thing...reading....just differently. Thanks for your advice!
