iPad Rumor: Leaked List May Be Core iPad Debut eBooks

ibooks_sm.png

TUAW posted a list of eBook titles yesterday that it thinks might be the lineup of titles Apple will use to promote iBooks upon launch. It’s got books by Stephen King, Malcolm Gladwell and Elizabeth Gilbert. It’s over 100 books, ranging in price from $14.99 to free.

Here’s more info from TUAW: “These titles are sampled from a list of ebooks that one of our tipsters turned up; we were then able to confirm that it was sourced from Apple, and it was found with other assets used to populate the iTunes store UI. It’s not immediately clear whether the 112 titles listed are truly destined for sale on the upcoming iPad book store; we thought it might be a list of titles used for the device’s launch demonstration, but there are books seen in the video that are not on this list, and vice versa.”

What’ most interesting about this is not the titles themselves–everyone’s got the same books (though there are apparently none from blabbermouth McGraw-Hill), but the fact that Apple might launch iBooks and draw attention to $14.99 eBooks. Goodbye $9.99…
