The service gives readers access to more than 100,000 titles including bestsellers and classics from major publishers on an iPhone app. The company tweeted today that the plan to roll out to the iPad this fall. You can read as many titles as you like. There is even a social aspect, so you can check out the books that your friends are reading.
