The British Library in conjunction with Bibliolabs has released a new Apple iPad App to satiate the literary thirst of customers worldwide.
This new application issued today simulates the reading experience much akin to a dusty old tomes. This makes sense due to the fundamental nature of the selection of books made available. Many classic authors such as Charles Dickens and Daniel Defoe will have books included on this new service. By the end of the year the entire book catalog will approach 60,000 ebooks.
This application stores books in the cloud and can be read offline. The service is not free but comes with a modest $2.99 a month subscription fee. Not to shabby of a deal considering all of these books were optimized for the Apple iPad.
