    I don't seem to be able to download anymore PDF to IBook. I used to open PDF from Dropbox to iBook easily but now the PDF does not OPEN on iBook anymore. I store many PDFs in iBook for offline access. Can anyone help? or give a solution. Very much appreciated.

    Have you tried to open it in another app that reads PDFs like good reader, Evernote or adobe reader. Just some options I use when I can't open in one app I use another in my collection.

    Yes, the other apps work but not iBook. I already have a collection of pdf of the same category on iBook so I was hoping to be able continue to add to the ibook for organization sake. But recently was no longer able to open pdf in iBooks.

    All PDFs suddenly cannot be opened in iBook. Really don't know why?

    Ok. Since it has not been mentioned yet, have you tried these common fixes?

    ------------------------------------
    Close/Clear the app: With the problem app closed, double tap on the Home button to get the multitask bar. Tap and hold on any icon in the bar until they jiggle, then tap the minus sign on the problem app. This will remove it from RAM and insure a clean start the next time you launch the app.

    If that does not work try a restart,

    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears. Apple recommends you restart the iPad at least once a month.

    and then a reset if that does not work.

    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.
