Hot off the press iTunes 9.1 (not in software updates) but a download on Apple’s site – it now supports “books” since the iPads are making their way around the globe. I have a Kindle and I like it, but I might go iPad if I can’t search text on all the “Kindle” apps (Mac, PC, iPhone) for another week.

So far the update just added my audio books to “books” and it also added an enhanced podcast I made, but it’s not displaying it properly now, interesting… more later. Might need to do some hacking, it’s unclear what the iBooks format is – a plain ole’ PDF is not in the “books” section, and that bothers me, but it appears using something Calibre and converting it to ePub works…
