iBooks is an offline reader. If you need any help with it, just ask. I use it offline all the time.
Oh ok thanks. I didn't want to buy books and find out that I can't read it outside f wifi. But yeh anyways thanks.

How to read ebooks offline?
Question for KevinJS. With ibooks reader, can you get books from Gutenberg.org and read them (you said it works offline to read them)? Which file format should I download? I have an iPad2 that someone gave me and am new to this. Thanks.

Reason: I want to say which person my question is for.
Most of the Gutenberg library is already available in the iBooks Store, and the titles are free. Just do a search.
But if you want to get books directly from the Gutenberg library, use the ePub format. When you download it using Safari you should get an Open In option. Choose iBooks and it will be loaded into the app.
Been a while since I've done this, so my instructions are a bit sketch. If you have problems let me know and I'll see if I can put together something a bit more detailed.
Hold in mind that side loaded books don't back up in iBooks, so if you want a copy as backup be sure to save one to your computer or a cloud service.
There's a Gutenberg app in the AppStore. It's not affiliated with Project Gutenberg but you can download any book in the Gutenberg library for offline reading in the app. Here's the link to the app in the AppStore. https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/free...585534682?mt=8

I prefer to read books on the iPad.The Kindle and Nook apps work fine for reading, as does the iBook app, and I believe that most free Gutenberg E-books are available in the iBook store and other ePub documents can be opened automatically in iBooks. The Kindle and iBook apps seem to work better when copying and saving passages to Notes or Pages than the Nook app.
I use both iBooks and the Kindle app. Both read offline great and yes you can get Gutenberg books into iBooks.
As Twerppoet said when in Safari, on project Gutenberg, click the link for your book in ePub or PDF format. Once opened in safari tap the page then you will see a "open in iBooks" in the upper right.
I am on my phone, I'll pull up a picture when I get on the iPad in a few minutes
