I guess that could be. To me the animated page turn feels gimmicky. It distracts from the reading experience to me. But to each his own right?mooshie78 said:Maybe because of the animated page turns and the land scape view that gives you two pages side by side like a paper book?
That's all I can think of for where they may be coming from in thinking the iPad is more "real book" like. Note they didn't say "paper like."
Just a thought. I still prefer my Kindle for reading books, iPad for reading other things (PDFs, newspapers, comics etc.) and all the non-reading functions.
