Terrible freebie

Why are you offering books Apple? This will only hurt the author/publisher due to all the kids coming on here crying that it wasn't some terrible touchscreen game.

And yes, I rated 5 stars to balance the inevitable flurry of idiots who will rate it 1 star because they lack the intelligence to read.

For free

Good for free! I'm giving 5 to help counteract the morons who can't read who will be giving one star for the lack of game for free!
