    True, but most of those titles are available for free in iBooks too, and you don't have to convert or import them. When iBooks was anounced they said the Gutenberg library of titles would be included.

    Of course you have to be careful. There are almost always pay for versions of the same book. You might have to check the whole search result list to be sure a free version isn't available.

    There is no really great way, that I can find.

    What you can do is go to Top Charts and see what Paid and Free books are most popular. To get a little control you can tap on the Category button at the top left and pick a genre. You can dig further down the list by scrolling to the bottom and choosing Show More.

    Also, of you go to Browse, you can search Author. There is a Paid or Free filter, and again, you can limit the list by genre.

    And that's about it, at least for now.

    Check iTunes and look at Books in the Library. Are they there?

    If yes then connect your iPad, select it, and check your sync settings.

    Also, the new iBooks app allows categories. You can divide up your books into various shelves. When you assign a book to one of these shelves it no longer appears on the main shelf. So, if you've been moving books around you may have to look through all the shelves you've created.
