    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

    You may try this PDF to ePub Converter for Mac, it works pretty well for me.

    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?

    Did you read the first post on this thread? The posts that follow should help as well.

    There are a number of PDF Apps designed to display PDF files if you don't need to keep them in your iBooks App. GoodReader is probably the most popular but iBooks can also handle them if they are converted.

    As others have said you can convert them using Calibre. Great application. I do know that you can read pdf in iBooks but you do not get the extra functions, such as tap a word to get a definition, or to copy and paste elsewhere. I've just converted all my Open University Text books to iBook format for this main reason. I had them all as PDFs but it was a hassle looking up stuff. Also iBook format is 'a nicer experience' and more like reading a book book.

    What about convering PDF or DOC to ePub directly on iPad? Anyone tried it? I've been trying to minimize PC use to check if I can lreplace it completely by iPad and this is the one of the simple things which should be possible. Unfortunatelly I can't find the way. I tried some combinations with Pages, QuickOffice, Dropbox, Box. No way. I would appreciate any hint.
