Depends which ebooks you have.

The Kindle and eReader Apps both import ebooks directly, not through iTunes. I am guessing the new eBooks App will do the same.


Edit - each one has its own proprietary ebooks of course.

Assuming the ebooks you have are intended for the eReader, run the eReader App, select Books, press the + sign and you get a menu of places from which you can download the ebooks, including the eReader/Fictionwise shelf. This allows you to redownload ebooks from your bookshelf on the ebooks for your iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile Smartphone, Palm Treo and Centro, Symbian Mobile Phones and more - Over 60,000 Titles and counting! website.

This is based on the version of the App on my iPhone. I don't have an iPad yet, but I assume it is similar.

I am guessing that the Apple iBooks App will work in a similar way, unless iTunes gets an additional Tab for importing ebooks.

Hope that helps

Grab GoodReader for PDFs.

I had an epub book that I dragged into Books in iTunes and it transferred to iBooks without a problem. The book has to be a .epub format. There are programs out there that will convert different kinds of formats to epub. I have Stanza on my Mac (works with Windows too) and it converts ebooks to epubs. You could give that a try.

im really looking forward to iBook and I hope I can transfer my PDF's to it over WiFi. If not, Stanza is by far the best reader app for iPhone and it's free.

I love to jump out of perfectly good airplanes!

You can just do the "add files" thing like you'd add music.
