    Got it already.. Have to say I like it, but.... I did have the vision the it was going to turn the PDF files in to epub looking files when in Ibooks (you know, page turns and all that) I know that may have just been my misconception of how it was going to work, but it sure is nice having everything in one place... I don;t know know if I will delete all the Epubs that that I already converted from PDF (and put the pDF version back on), but I will most liklly not convert any new ones..

    iBooks looks great, but the update has created an issue with files converted with Calibre... the dictionary no longer works with those books.
    The dev said on another forum that a fix is already in the works - I guess I'll have to re-convert the Calibre books I've sent to my iPad.

    Yay!

    Is anyone having any luck with bookmarks? I loaded a book that I have been reading and checked to make sure my old book marks are there (and they are). Then I closed out of iBooks 1.1 on my iPad (having already selected that the book marks should be stored in my iTunes Store).

    I then opened iBooks 1.1 on my iPhone and found and then redownloaded that same book from the iTunes Store. I had already selected that I wanted iTunes Store to sync my bookmarks here as well. When I view bookmarks from iBooks on the iPhone for this book, none of the bookmarks are shown (since the day I started reading the book).

    I then navigated to the page I'm currently on and tried setting the new bookmark (with the ribbon instead of in text highlight). Here again, the book mark did not propagate. Seems odd...

    I've double checked the Sync Bookmarks on both devices and each is set properly and each is iBooks 1.1. Stwange...

    And it completely rearranged my bookshelf. I had it set up the way I wanted and now I have to re-do all of it. With over 600 books, that is a lot of dragging around. I wish we could use iTunes to arrange the bookshelf.

    Can't really help you guys with the bookmark problem, many in another forum I go to are bragging about how well it works, for all (even non-Apple and non-DRM) books.

    Perhaps the devices have to be on the SAME WIFI network?

    Your iPad software is up to date but iBooks is managed through the app store.

    The sync'ing seems to be working between my iPod Touch and iPad, but one of the only mildly aggravating things is that when you bookmark a page on the iPad is that is assumes you are at the top of the page. If you were actually at the bottom of the page on your iPad when you set the bookmark, when you go to your iPod Touch and open the book, it will take you to the top of the page that was last opened on your iPad. Because of the page size, this means that you will have to turn approximately three pages on your iPod Touch to get to the bottom of the page that you were on when using your iPad.

    Confused yet?

    I haven't had this "problem" with the Kindle app since it seems to assume you were at the bottom of the page (which is usually where I set my bookmarks).

    You must not have the latest iBooks installed. ..... by the way another way to get PDF's to iBooks is through Dropbox (or I'm sure other cloud apps) , and that is my preferred way now.... love Dropbox.... one of those little things that effects so many others.....
