Regarding Importing Epub Books - Pdf Users
the pdf user's guide states, chapter 15:Syncing BooksUse iTunes to sync your books with iPad. When iPad is connected to your computer, the Books pane lets you choose which books to sync.In addition to books that you download from iBookstore, iBooks works with books that are in ePub format and DRM-free. There are several websites that offer ePub books, and many of these books can be used with iBooks.
Add an ePub book: Download the book using your computer, then add it to your iTunes library. Connect iPad to your computer, select the book in the Books pane in iTunes, then sync iPad.

And Importing Sony DRM Epub Books
I purchase a Sony Daily edition ereader in January 2010 and since then I have purchased 129 DRM encoded epuB books from the Sony book store. The Sony e reader is pure junk. I have a hard time syncronising with my PC and there is no backlight so I cant read in bed without a flashlight. Can someone help me with a specific way to strip the DRM from the Sony Epub books so that I can read them on my brand new IPAD? I called sony and after they verified my identity and every one of my purchases the customer service guy said that if I can find a way to put Adobe Digital Editing on the Ipad that would work. He stated that all Sony could say is that Sony might be working on an IPAD application.

Converted EPub Books In IBooks
I have a question about converted ePub books. How do they look in iBooks? I have a Barnes & Noble Nook e-reader and when I buy a book from the Barnes & Noble e-store, the books look great, nice margins on the side of the screen so its easier to read. But when I side load a book, it doesn't format it the same way. The text goes all the way to edge to edge of the screen. When you add your own eBook does it look as good as the ones you buy from the iBook store?

Can't Download EPub Books From Library
I tried to checkout a couple of books online from my local library. When I download them (using safari) I get an error saying that safari can't open the link. The library also offers a program called Overdrive to use for downloads, but it's also a media manager. I can't figure out how to get the ebook into iBooks, they stay in Overdrive.

Import Un-encrypted Epub Books Via ITunes
I do I found you can import un-encrypted epub books in to the iPad via iTunes 'Add File to Library' they show up in the 'Books' section, previously 'Audiobooks'. Then just drag and drop to your iPad and they will appear on your iBook shelf. I only had two epub books so far that would not transfer over, iTunes said the files were unreadable. So I do not know if it was the formating. But the epub ebooks I have gotten from Baen, and the un-encrypted epub ebooks I have gotten Fictionwise have transfered over without any problems.

Can't Backup My Manually Added Epub Books
In iBooks, I have several books and PDF files. When synchronizing with iTunes, books from the bookstore and PDFs are saved and transferred into iTunes. But I cannot do the same for manually added ePub books that I added using USB transfer (I think I used Downloader lite). Anyway, since I am using generally Ubuntu, I use the iTunes sharing folder from an app to copy stuff in my iPad from Ubuntu. Then I just open the app, select the file and do a "Open in..." to put the file in the proper native app.

I have three books that I got a long time ago, put them on my iPad using Ubuntu. My problem is that I cannot find the originals on my computer, and I would like to copy those 3 books in my iPhone. If only I could find my cd from where I rediscovered this books, that would solve my issue...

Project Gutenberg Allowed Unrestricted Epub Books To Sync
Just read this article about the ability to download and read every ebook from Project Gutenberg on your iPad. I'm so glad Apple has allowed unrestricted epub books to sync with your ipad, it opens up a ton of classic books that people can read for free. I know I'm going to download a bunch of classics right after I get my iPad.

Delicated Epub Reader
I had a PRS600 - Sony Ebook Reader, which I brought in Nov 2009, however, which I used it frequently to read my ebooks. I was wondering if iPad allows me to read ePub formats, if I simply copy the files over to iPad, so I would not need to bring a Reader and Ipad out.

I am based in Singapore, therefore purchasing books through IBooks is not the solution, Kindle for iPAD is not a solution in Singapore for me too, due to copyright and distribution issues.

For my Sony Ebook, it also have this problem, however I manage to find a way to skirt through these problems.

If iPad allows me to read ePub which i can purchase directly from Sony Ebook Library, it would be great.

EPub Book Covers Not Importing Into ITunes
I have about 100 epub books I acquired elsewhere and when I bring them in Adobe Epub reader the cover art shows up just fine. But when I bring them in iTunes the cover art does not show up. Technically epub files are just zip files so I can open them up, pull the cover art out and associate it manually in iTunes with each file but its a major pain.Anyone else tried to bring in an ePub book into iTunes? I'm wondering if books bought elsewhere "conveniently" don't display cover art. But the verdict is out at the moment.

Converted RTF File To EPub Sync To IBooks
So I thought I'd test the ePub format on iBooks. Took a large RTF file and converted to ePub format using Calibre. Loaded to the iPad and ... it only showed the cover art and the first page of Chapter 1, then nothing else the whole 300+ pages.

I went back to view it in Calibre and the whole doc is there. Has anyone else tried converting from any format to ePub, then synching to iBooks? Would be interested to hear feedback on it.
