Flipboard’s already one of the best ways to read and discover web content on the iPad and iPhone, and now they’re taking that to the next level, integrating e-book discovery by tapping right into the Apple iBookstore. It’s like browsing in a virtual e-book shop.
Over on their official blog, Flipboard announces:
Whether you’re into cookbooks or computer books, fiction or non, all of the iBooks 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 “article” also contains a quick way to download the book from the iTunes store. 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 can be accessed in the local Flipboard Content Guides, including the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, The Netherlands and Brazil.
