Reading an eBook isn't much harder than reading a paperback. Here are the simple steps involved in making your way around an eBook using iBooks eReader:

  1. Tap iBooks, and if your Library (the bookshelf) isn't already displayed, tap the Library button.

  2. Tap an eBook to open it.

    The book opens. (If you hold your iPad in portrait orientation, it shows one page; if in landscape orientation, it will show two).

    • Tap and drag the slider at the bottom of the page to the right or left to move to another page in the book.

    • Tap the Table of Contents button in the top-left corner of the page (it looks like a little bulleted list) to go to the book's Table of Contents and then tap a chapter to go to it.
