If you got an Amazon Kindle, the good news is that you can also use the Apple iPad to read all the Kindle books that you may have purchased from Amazon.com.

According to NYT, Amazon has created an app for the Kindle that will not only let you read books on the Kindle but you will also be able to buy book from the Amazon store directly to your Kindle device.

The Kindle app for the iPad, which Amazon demonstrated to a reporter last week, allows readers to slowly turn pages with their fingers. It also presents two new ways for people to view their entire e-book collection, including one view where large images of book covers are set against a backdrop of a silhouetted figure reading under a tree. The sun’s position in that image varies with the time of day. link.

Other that the iPad, the Kindle app is also available for your Windows PC, Mac, iPhone and iPad Touch. Barnes & Noble’s is also developing an ebook reading app for the iPad.
