7 Best Reading Apps For The iPad

As a mom of two boys under five, I would consider myself an average reader.  I wish I made the time to read more, but in my quest to juggle motherhood, life, and sanity, I think I will take what I have (for now).

And since I am always on the go and never seem to find myself in a nice comfortable spot for too long, I tend to read my from iDevice. So with that, I went on a quest to find eBook apps that provide readers with options for reading on the go.

Below are seven eBook app options that will make your reading experience a pleasant one.
