    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    You can save a lot of PDF's to iBooks. Download iBooks and press the PDF in your email and you should get an Open In iBooks option. Goodreader is another great app.

    An easy way is to get Office2 HD or Quickoffice HD (or one of the free PDF viewers) and a Dropbox account. That way you can Dropbox stuff to yourself. You then have the option of emailing someone a Dropbox link to share a file or simply emailing it as an attachment from within the App'. Office2, Quickoffice and all free viewers, will extract PDF's from emails as well.

    I hope this helps.
