so this tutorial will cover macintosh only for windows users modify it as you see fit.

HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED:

1. CALIBRE FOR MACINTOSH

2. MAC OS X 10.6,10.7,10.8

3. LATEST VERSION OF ITUNES

4. THE GUTENBURG PROJECT WEB SITE


HERE IS A STEP BY STEP GUIDE.


1. DOWNLOAD CALIBRE FOR MACINTOSH INSTALL IT RUN IT FOR THE FIRST TIME TELL IT IBOOKS IS YOUR DEVICE DONT WORRY ABOUT E-MAIL SETUP IT DOESNT FUNCTION RIGHT NOW.

2. OPEN SAFARI AND GO TO GOOGLE AND SEARCH GUTENBURG PROJECT

3. SEARCH AND DOWNLOAD THE BOOK OF YOUR CHOICE (NOW ON A NOTE THE REASON FOR CALIBRE IS TO CONVERT THE BOOK FORMAT INTO THE FORMAT OF IBOOKS WHICH IS EPUB SO IF THE BOOK IS ONLY IN MOBI OR PDF YOU CAN GET IT IN THAT FORMAT AND CONVERT THE BOOK INTO EPUB)

4. ONCE DOWNLOADED SELECT CALIBRE AND OPEN IT AGAIN.

5. DRAG YOUR BOOK INTO THE CALIBRE WINDOW

6. ONCE YOUR BOOK APPEARS IN THE CALIBRE WINDOW SELECT CONVERT AND SELECT THIS TITLE ONLY AND SELECT EPUB

7. YOU WILL NOTICE YOU CANNOT TRANSFER FILES IN CALIBRE SO DONT EVEN TRY GO INTO THE FOLDER WHERE YOU SAVED YOUR CALIBRE LIBRARY

8. SELECT THE FOLDER WITH YOUR BOOK INSIDE IT OPEN ITUNES AND DRAG YOUR BOOK INTO ITUNES NOW TRANSFER YOUR BOOK INTO ITUNES AND YOU ARE ALL FINISHED

NOW JUST SYNC AND ENJOY

THIS WORKS WITH PDF AND WITH MOBI TO EPUB CONVERSION AS WELL
