Ran across this in a flip board news article. This is a ibook put together by NASA on discoveries made by the Hubble Space Telescope. Free, but only for iPad. You also need to load the ibooks app to get the book.
Book has both images with explanations as well as embedded movies from some of the astronomers, mission developers as well as movies on the discoveries.
Note - best viewed in landscape (wide left/right) mode. The book is about 1Gbyte in size, so you will need to have some space to download the book.
I think the easiest way to get the book is to load the Apple ibooks app on your ipad (if not already there) from the app store (free). Then open ibooks, tap the store in the upper left corner, search for "Hubble Space Telescope Discoveries" and install the book.
