    Hello there,

    I have some ebooks that I want on my iPad. But it doesn't work. I hope you guys can help me out!

    When my iPad and my Macbook pro has synced, I paste the epub file of that book to my booklist. I then see the name of that book in my list but it's still grey. When I click sync, at step 2 it removes the book and at step 3 the book isn't still there. That epub file doesn't stay but it goes away.

    What is the problem and what can I do?

    Thank you.

    PS: I hope it is readable. My mother language isn't English so sorry if isn't understandable

    An easy way to put books on the ipad that I've found is to email the files to myself and then open them from the mail app.

    I've sent myself the file and opened it with my gmail app. But it downloads the file, I really want to read them on my iBook app. How can I read that book in iBook?

    You have to long press on the file until an "open in.." Menu appears then choose iBooks.
