The new version of iTunes is available and has a new book folder in the Library. I can add an ePub (non-DRM), and in grid view see the cover under "Books", with all my Audiobooks in another section. The cover looks nice, but if there is a way of getting to page 2, it is currently eluding me!

Did you press the "Play" button while the ebook was selected?

You didn't really want to be able to read ebooks in iTunes anyway.. right. ;)

It would nice to be able to listen to them, though.

You can... as long as you get your ebooks from Audible. ;)

Well I read them on Kindle for Mac, or the Sony Reader application. It does seem to be a bit of an omission! Also, it continues down the path of iTunes being the hub of all syncing activity, rather than a music jukebox. I think that is a bit like bloatware - and I am an Apple fanatic!

Arg! I think I am going to have to wait until I know about the jailbreak for the iPhone :)


EDIT: What the heck am I talking about! I forgot that I can install it on Windows 7 (under Parallels) and try it out that way :)
