If you find yourself a bit cash-strapped after plunking down a few hundred bucks for an iPad, don't worry - you can fill up your new tablet/e-reader device with thousands of books and not have to pay a single cent.

Web site, which obviously is all about Apple Apps, ran an exclusive story, as well as screenshots from the digital store, with claims that tens of thousands of iPad books will be available for free.

According to the story, most if not all of the free books appear to be pulled from an existing library of free e-books, which contains works of classic literature.

However, other e-readers like the Sony Reader do not make these books easily available. There's really no point because Sony doesn't earn anything by using up its own bandwidth to host something that doesn't cost the end user any money.

This is a big boon for iPad consumers as well as the classical literature industry.

For those who have forgotten (shame on you), the iPad is due out April 3.
