One thing that we have been taking advantage of since we got our iPad is the Kindle App. It has been so wonderful for our family. If you go to Amazon.com, there is a HUGE selection (thousands) of free Kindle books that you can download right to your iPad. They have so many wonderful classic books. And, their collection continues to grow, I have noticed. I love reading the classics!
If you don’t have a Kindle or e-reader, you can download them to read from your computer. I never seem to want to sit at my computer and read, but some people don’t mind doing that.
I bought my iPad (a first gen) when the second model had just been released. There were a bunch for sale on Amazon for a GREAT price. You may be able to do the same now that they have released another new one. Look into it- there are so many wonderful learning opportunities available on them!

I love ebooks! A kindle is on my wish list, maybe this year! For now I read them on my laptop. It’s not as convenient, but still saves a lot on books. 🙂
