30,000 free ebooks available via Apple iBookstore?

March 25, 2010

With all the iPad buzz lately, I couldn’t help but check out Mac Rumors to see the latest on what the iPad will offer those who are willing to shell out $499 on this gadget. Though I’m not one to get overly excited about new gadgets (nor spend the money on them), I have to admit the iPad is an amazing piece of technological eye candy. (yum)

Mac Rumors is reporting a $9.99 price point for “most best sellers” in the Apple iBookstore.  That means books at the top of the N.Y. Times best seller list for $9.99 only, similar to the price point offered by Amazon for the Kindle.

Today, Mac Rumors is reporting that 30,000 free ebooks from Project Gutenberg will also be available for free download via the iBookstore.   There is no registration fee to download from Project Gutenberg.
