sheesh, about time, Apple Adds Ability to Directly Download E-books from iTunes Store on Your Mac

Looking for some new reading material for your summer trips? Books are now available for purchase directly from the iTunes store. Previously, you could only purchase e-books through the iBookstore on your iPhone or iPad. But, since Apple yesterday announced the Newsstand feature in the next iteration of iOS, the store seems to have adapted to these new changes. Users will now be able to buy books from their computers and then sync them to their devices.

Apple has also implemented the ability to add books to your wishlist and share them on Facebook and Twitter. But keep in mind, you'll still need the iBooks app on all of your iOS devices to read your new e-books.
