Books and the iPad

What will Apple's new touchscreen tablet computer do for e-books? Flavorwire has some information and speculation, along with the crucial question, "Seriously, we're all really gonna call it that?"

I'm not burning to rush out and buy one; not only do I already have a computer that works just fine, I don't do well with touchscreens. I thought about getting an iPhone but typing on that tiny screen I felt like a chimp trying to fly a helicopter. Still, I definitely would like to try one.

Two articles about things more important than the Apple toy of the week: GOOD Magazine's Haiti reading list and (I'll get through it eventually!) the Times Magazine's profile of James Patterson.
