Bookworms, Rejoice! Apple’s iBookstore Comes to Flipboard
Inside Flipboard / November 15, 2012
Today, Flipboard welcomes a new category, Books, powered by 25 new sections containing the most popular books from Apple’s iBookstore. Reflecting as many genres as there are sections, it’s like browsing in a bookstore, right from your Flipboard.
Whether you’re into cookbooks or computer books, fiction or non, all of the iBookstore pages have been specially designed and optimized for Flipboard. The books sections’ clean, white pages offer a well-lighted space in which to decide what to read next. In addition to a write-up of the book from the publisher and an image of the book, each â€œarticleâ€ also contains a quick way to download the book from the iBookstore. Once you get it, you can naturally enjoy all the features of iBooks on your iPhone or iPad, including fully illustrated books like children’s picture books, art books, photo books and cookbooks.
Flipboard’s new Books category, with all the iBookstore sections, are available in the local Flipboard Content Guides, including the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, The Netherlands and Brazil, only on iOS devices. Tap the red ribbon and scroll down to the country selector in “This Week” to explore books popular in any of these countries.
