There must be a way but I cannot see how. The whole ibook thing is about buying books. I own pdf books on my computer that I want to get into the ipad to read. Also winnie the poo has appeared on my ibook shelf that I did not order. I want to use the ibook app to read the pdf books not goodreader which I bought and I syncd a couple of pdf books with that app and they caused goodreader to loop so I had to delete it.
