    What is large? Can it fit into internal storage?
    For now I think Bluefire is best for PDF's :)

    Pdf

    Hi,

    I created an e-mail message on my iMac and sent it to myself. I attached the PDF file. I opened the message on my iPad and saved the attachment into the iBook reader. It worked perfectly and appeared on my bookshelf.

    Thank you - that worked perfectly. Send an email to the iPad - open it up - save it to iBooks. Neat ... Thank You

    Nice site has nice eBook on iPAD tips but...

    I would follow the instructions except the sync stage. Better to drag the book from the iTune lib to the device. No need to sync. syncing the iTune lib is calling for later Trouble.

    Cool, I was looking for a good PDF app too.


    EDIT: Just looked it up, no hi-res iPad version?

    One word of warning, it's not clear when a PDF file has been synched. I could see it in the Library list but it wouldn't appear in iBooks. It drove me crazy trying all kinds of things until I discovered that PDFs are not automatically placed with other books on the iBooks shelf. You have to click on "Collections" and select "PDFs". I'm obviously an iPad noob. :)

    Bob, that is correct. It's not obvious that the anything worked and I think it's because PDF support in iBooks was really an afterthought.
