    Is there an easier way to get things into ibooks?
    That is, easier than emailing the document/PDF to myself from my computer, opening it up on my device and than 'saving' it to iBooks? Seems like there should be a simple drag and drop kind of action through iTunes, maybe?

    I don't use the cloud much, if at all, so maybe that is an option?

    thoughts?
    thanks!

    Have you tried using Air Drop from your Mac to your iOS device?

    Do you have a Mac? Open iBooks, goto File > Add To Library, then navigate to the .pdf file.

    You should be able to sync it with iTunes now.

    What macOS and iTunes versions are you using? Or, if you have the option in iBooks, to use iCloud sync, you can use that also?

    You need to put your Mac's specs in your profile so we would know how to answer a question like yours. By the way, Air Drop was available on an old MacBook that I long ago sold off. (2008 model)

    I have a mid-2010 model. Where did you access Airdrop from? I have not been able to locate it.
