    I have a lot of magazines and books from various websites on my laptop and would like
    to put them onto my ipad3 but ?
    I just do not know how cos as far as I can see you can only use Itunes and I did not
    get them from there. All attempts so far have just been a waste of time.

    Try Copy Trans. I haven't used for mags, but I have books on PDF. Use for movies and music also. Wonderful go around
    iTunes.

    Use Dropbox. (Dropbox must be installed on both your PC and iPad).
    Open Dropbox on the PC and drag and drop your book or other document into the Document folder.
    Open Dropbox on your iPad, open Documents and open the book (it will probably give you a "cannot open" message).
    Ignore any error message and send (forward) the book to iBooks where it should appear on the shelf.
    I have used this with ePub books, but it should work with any format that iBooks recognizes.
    Hope this helps.

    I find the combination of Google Currents, any good RSS capture app, and Twitter with Instapaper loads up oodles of reading materials to peruse at my leisure.

    Thank BMWrider! I'd been looking for something like this myself!
