Reading an iBook on Your iPad

To start reading a book, tap it. The book leaps off the shelf, and at the same time, it opens to either the beginning of the book or the place where you left off. (And you may have left off on an iPhone, iPod touch, or another iPad because through your Apple ID, your virtual place in a book is transported from device to device.)

Even from the very title page, you can appreciate the color and beauty of Apple’s app as well as the navigation tools, as shown in this figure.


If you rotate the iPad to the side, the one-page book view becomes a two-page view, though all the navigational controls remain the same. On some of the newer multitouch books, you may have a scrolling view of a book rather than the typical one-page view.

While you're lounging around reading, and especially if you’re lying down, we recommend that you use the Screen Rotation Lock to stop the iPad from inadvertently rotating the display.

You can take advantage of the iPad’s VoiceOver feature to have the iPad read to you out loud. It may not be quite like having Mom or Dad read you to sleep, but it can be a potential godsend for people with impaired vision.
