||OSÂ XÂ Mavericks begins a new chapter in the iBooks story. Now the books you've already downloaded on your iPad, iPhone, or iPodÂ touch will automatically appear in iBooks on your Mac. And there are over 1.8 million more in the iBooksÂ Store, ready for you to download with just a few clicks.1 Reading books is every bit as intuitive as it is on an iOS device--turn pages with a swipe, zoom in on images with a pinch, or scroll from cover to cover. If you're a student hitting the books, keep as many open as you like and search through them with ease. When you quote an excerpt while writing a paper, iBooks adds a citation for you. And when you take notes, highlight passages, or add a bookmark on your Mac, iCloud pushes them to all your devices automatically. That way you have them on whichever one you take to class. iCloud even remembers which page you're on. So if you start reading on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, you can pick up right where you left off onÂ your Mac.
