Or you can use iTunes to add ePub and PDF books on your bookshelf. You just tap a book, you can start reading. iBooks will record your location, so you can easily return to the previous position. And a variety of display options will make your reading easier.
PDF to e-reader: iBooks: Opening PDFs with iBooks You can open PDF documents, such as a PDF attached to an email, with iBooks. When you view a PDF email attachment, simply tap "Open in iBooks," located in the upper-right corner of the screen. iBooks will open and you'll be able to view your PDF using the iBooks app. When you use iBooks to open a PDF, iBooks will automatically save a copy of the PDf to your iBooks PDF shelf. These PDFs will also sync back to your iTunes Book library the next time you sync your device with iTunes. Syncing and saving PDFs To add PDFs to your iTunes library on your computer, simply drag and drop the PDF into your iTunes Book library. To sync a PDF to iBooks on your device: 1. Select your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch in the Devices list on the left in iTunes 10.1 or later. 2. Click the Books tab in the resulting window. 3. Ensure that the Sync Books checkbox is enabled. 4. If iTunes is set to only sync selected books, be sure to enable the checkbox next to the PDF you want to sync. 5. Click Sync. iTunes can backup your PDF files so they are restored to your iOS device after a software restore, update, or to transfer information to a different device. When you use iTunes 10.1 or later to sync your PDF files to iBooks 1.2 or later on your iOS device, a backup of your PDF will be automatically created. A copy of the PDF will be added to your iTunes Books library. http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4227 Kindle: Transferring Files Via USB Both Macintosh and Windows users can download and transfer Kindle content, personal documents, and MP3 and Audible files from their computers to their Kindles through the USB connection.

Macintosh: Mac OS X 10.2 or later. USB port: An available port or an attached USB hub with an available port. Making the Connection The illustration below shows a Kindle and a laptop computer connected through the USB cable. To connect Kindle to your computer: 1. Plug the larger end of the USB cable into an available USB port or a powered USB hub connected to your computer. 2. Connect the other end of the USB cable to the micro-USB port on the bottom of your Kindle. When connected to your PC, your Kindle will go into USB drive mode and its battery will be recharged by the computer. Your Whispernet service is temporarily shut off and you will not receive any of your subscriptions while in this mode. Also, your Kindle is not usable as a reading device while you are in USB drive mode, but will return right to where you were when you undock the device from your computer.

You'll see a lightning bolt on the battery status icon that indicates your Kindle is still charging. To move files to and from Kindle: 1. Connect your Kindle to your computer as described above. Your Kindle should appear on your computer in the same location you would normally find an external USB drive. 2. Use your computer's file browser to drag and drop files to and from Kindle. 3.
