Can I Read "The Murder At Asbury Park"On My iPad?

The answer is "Yes!"

(If you don't mind a little set-up)

Note the following...

Through "The Murder At Asbury Park" was not designed for the iPad, you can easily read it on the iPad. The links inside the work will not function, however. (For example, the links from the Index to a certain page, or from the pages to the Notes, or from one section to another. This is not a big problem, though...)
Are you using something other than an iPad?  if it accepts PDF files,
you should be able to read "The Murder At Asbury Park."

How to use "The Murder At Asbury Park" on the iPad

Save the contents of the CD on your computer.  It should look something like this:

Now open CHAPTER_1 Folder. The open folder should look something like this:

(There are 15 sections to the first chapter.)
Now simply upload the contents of a folder (Chapter 1, in this example) into iTunes in the usual way you upload PDFs files or other files. For Chapter 1, you should also upload the Cover Page (MURDER_AP.pdf) and the Appendix (APPEN.pdf). The Cover Page and Appendix are actually outside the first chapter folder. You see the Cover Page as soon as you open the CD; the Appendix  you will find in the ENDSCTS Folder.  That makes a total of 17 files.
Once you have uploaded, sync the files with iTunes in the usual fashion.  On your iPad put the files in ascending order by pressing down on a file and dragging with your finger. Since you can’t tell the names of the sections on the iPad (to move them into the correct order), refer to your computer.
First Chapter order on the iPad:

MURDER_AP.pdf
 FORWARD.pdf
 PREFACE.pdf
6_16.pdf
17_24.pdf
25_30.pdf
31_40.pdf
41_49.pdf
50_56.pdf
57_63.pdf
64_70.pdf
71_78.pdf
79_84.pdf
85_92.pdf
93_96.pdf
MAPS2.pdf
APPEN.pdf

The first chapter files should look like like this on your iPad Bookshelf:

To read, open the files in the usual way. When you finish reading one of the sections, simply open the next. Access to the Notes section is just as easy. 

When you are done reading the first chapter, just delete the files (if you wish) and upload the files from the second chapter folder. (You should leave the Appendix section in place because it is used for all chapters. The Maps section is also useful.)

Of course, you could (I guess) upload every chapter before you start reading -- and have the whole book on your iPad -- but that would be a lot of files!


You can "pinch" the page to make it larger or you can read horizontal (landscape mode) to increase the size even more.

**Please Note: I used an iPad running iOS 5 (October 2011). Earlier versions of the iPad or its software may require a different set-up (perhaps even the use of an app such as Goodreader, available at the online Apple Stores).**
