Apple has entered into a partnership with the U.S. Government Printing Office to make federal ebooks available on iTunes. With deal with Apple may be new, but you can buy ebooks from the government publisher on most other ereader platforms, including Google and Barnes & Noble.
It’s great that the government is making more of its materials available. For instance, you can download Appendix, Budget of the United States, FY 2013. It’s not exactly light reading, but in this election year, being informed is of the essence. Two other titles now up for sale on iTunes are Ponzimonium: How Scam Artists are Ripping Off America and On Course to DesertStorm.
