    iBooks can read PDF? Does that mean the iBookstore will publish PDFs? Is there a difference?

    Sometimes, you can't read a PDF eBook so smooth than ePub books, because Pdf can't navigate and reflow so well as ePub. For exanple, the font size maybe too smaller to read easily and you have to zoom in or you may not freely mark on the file while viewing. :eek:

    I didn't like calibre. I ended up going converting my PDF to ePub through an eBook service site. It was the best thing I could have done. I wish I started there first.

    i did that too. But it's not the same as epub. So i was playing w/ it a lil. But if that's the case, then i guess i'll just stick w/ the pdf format.

    This post is kinda old, because iBooks can read PDF now. The conversion process is not necessary anymore! :p

    Ye it accepts PDF but not with the covers etc

    It's nice to have them look like a book and not a piece of paper

    The ePub book I create from pdf with Calibre, line and paragraph have mixed up. Until I found this instructions from google to show skills to transfer pdf to iPad 2 , the tool helps me create an ePub from pdf with well preserve content and layout!

    Hi I'm new to IPad. How do I convert my PDF files or import my PDF files into the IPad? Do I use a PDF reader or IBooks to read the files?
