    iBooks is primarily for reading books from the iBooks Store, though you can load other ePub and PDF books; if they do not have DRM (Digital Rights Management). Most ebook store books are DRM.

    If the books you want are on Amazon, you can download and use the Kindle app to read Kindle books purchased from them. You just download the app and enter your Amazon ID and password. At that point any ebook you've purchased at Amazon will show up in the app ready for download.

    The same is true of other eBook retailers. Most have their own apps, so if you find a source with the authors you want, check their site and the App Store to see if they have an iPad app.

    We'll need some more details; like what website you are downloading books from, what format they are in, and exactly what is not happing that used to work.

    I've been loading ePub books onto my IPad fine (original version not 2 or3) until the most recent update to IBooks. Now half the books will not load, although they are from the same source with no DRM. What gives?

    Try one of the other ePub readers, like the Bluefire reader.

    I'll try, but I really want to use IBooks. It is convenient to have all the books in one reader, especially having book series in one reader. Any idea why the sudden problem loading ePub books. I have 200 books loaded with no issue until the most recent update to IBooks. This problem is even occurring with ePub files generated by Calibre as well as ePub files bought from the press.

    I'm afraid they might have made a change in preparation for a new DRM scheme because the old one was cracked.

    Blue fire does load the book. Still, I'd rather use IBooks, if possible. There must be a solution.
