I am reading Apple iBooks How-to, a short e-book from Packt Publishing, introducing the apps and tools for reading and publishing books via Apple's iBooks and iBooks Author programmes.
Apple iBooks How-to is a hand-holding guide to how to start using iBooks. The books is so easy to follow, provided you have an iPad or another iOS device at hand, that I can already recommend it to whoever has doubts or fears about venturing into self-publishing. Of course, it needn't be something grand, like War and Peace or Pride and Prejudice. You can publish you student paper or a family album too.
See the book at Packt Publishing here.
