I suppose my pic is borderline off-topic.  It's  standalone App rather than iBooks.However, it does represent a huge advantage the iPad has over eInk readers.  Not just the color, but the huge selection of useful (and not-so-useful) apps that are all available on a single device.  I certainly wouldn't want to have to carry separate devices for reading, for charts, for weather, for email... I agree that reading in daylight with eInk is much more comfortable... but (for me)...
