iBooks selected textIf you copy text while reading a book in iBooks for iOS, then paste it into another app, it will include an excerpt and link. Here’s an example from Without Their Permission, by Alexis Ohanian. The rest of this post below is the entirety of what iBooks placed in my clipboard (though I add my affiliate account to all App Store links here if you’d like to support Finer Things in Tech):

“Global connectivity isn’t just changing the way we do business; it’s changing the way we think of value. More than ever, we as individuals have the opportunity to put our ideas into practice without the implicit or material support of traditional communities, industries, and governments. Now any individual—an undergrad at UVA, a comedian from Austin with cerebral palsy, a farmer in Missouri, or a public school teacher from the Bronx—can transform the way we all live.”
Excerpt From: Ohanian, Alexis. “Without Their Permission.” Grand Central Publishing, 2013-10-01. iBooks.
