    Hey, thanks for the plug!!

    I would certainly encourage anyone that is interested in reading it on the iPad to drop into Smashwords and pick it up for free over the long weekend! It's the same as the version in the iBookstore since I use Smashwords to deliver it there for me. :)

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the free book info.

    I have signed up and downloaded The Second Coming, now how do I get this into iBooks? Downloaded Stanza and although I like this program on my Touch not so good on the iPad.

    Open iTunes. In iTunes goto file/add file to library (or folder) point it to the book you download and import. It will now show up in your books in iTunes and when you sync it will be in iBooks on your iPad. That, by the way, is also then way to add music, photos, and video.....

    This of course assuming you downloaded the book in ePub format from Smashwords....

    I forgot to add that in general the Apple support site has tons of good info about your iPad.... Apple - Support - iPad

    You can also just drag the book into iTunes.....

    If you didn't download in epub format you can always go back and download it again. That's the great thing about Smashwords. The books are DRM free and once you've paid for it, you can download in any format at any time!

    Thanks for picking it up!! :)

    Well, the offer has now expired. If you missed it, the book is still cheap and available for $2.99 at Smashwords and the iBookstore.

    Thanks everyone!!
