iBooks: Build your own Jules Verne library

We haven't mentioned iBooks a great deal on iPad Creative. This is in part because of our continuing frustration over the lack of content and reasonable pricing structure. Apple really need to get their act together with iBooks, before Amazon and perhaps even Google corner the market for digital books. However, when it comes to classic works of literature that are already in the public domain, iBooks is an invaluable part of any iPad.

Jules Verne, the French author who pioneered the science-fiction genre, was born on this day in 1928. Head on over to iBooks and pick up some of his classics, many of which are free to download to your collection.

Is there any doubt that the enigmatic author of such classics as 'A Journey to the Centre of the Earth' and 'Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea' would have loved something as empowering as the iPad?
