    Got Raistlin Crononicles (dragonlance for the win) was getting ready to read it and realized this sucks, can adjust font and cant light up backgrond. Nuff said.

    So you don't like the iPad for books? Or just the Raistlin Crononicles?

    I've read on a Nook, it was a pleasant experience.

    While I don't completely understand everything you wrote (English?).....

    I have to say I think reading on the iPad is great. I prefer the iBooks reader but I usually read in the Kindle App. because of Amazon's selection and pricing.

    Can you be more specific about your problem ie - what reader are you using and what exactly is the issue?

    Yes, you can adjust the font, in iBooks, Stanza and a whole lot of other readers. If by "light up background" you mean adjust contrast, you can do that too. Curious why you'd conclude otherwise.

    Hilarious. I think it's less a misuse of English and more a sign of how far ebooks have come. They've come so far that on this forum we take the phrase "read a book" to mean "read a book on [insert name of ereader]" by default.

    In all fairness, this thread IS in the iPad forum.

    Nice one there, OP.

    Solution:

    1. Open Acrobat Pro
    2. Select Create New Document from scan.
    3. Scan first page of book.
    3. Choose - Scan another page into the document.
    4. Repeat process several times. Well, a few more than several
    5. Save PDF.
    6. Convert PDF to ePub format
    7. Import ePub book into iTunes
    8. Or, just import PDF into iTunes.
    9. Sync.
    10. Don't do any of this, because you're probably violating some sort of copywright laws.
