How to Transfer ePub eBooks to Your iPad
How to Get eBook Files onto Your iPad without Use of a Computer
First, be sure you have the iBooks app on your iPad. This is Apple’s own e-reader for the iPad. (If you do not have it on your device already, please go to the App Store and download it– it’s free). If you receive email on your iPad (using the iPad’s mail app), open the attached file in this message on your iPad (you may need to touch the attachment once to download it, which could take a few minutes; then touch the icon to open it). If it asks you if you’d like to open it with iBooks, select yes. It may take a while to load. But once it loads, it should then be saved in your iBooks app.

Kindle and Your Computer
8.1 Getting Started
This section lists the requirements for connecting Kindle to your computer. The USB cable you use with your power adapter can also be used to connect your Kindle to a computer, so there is nothing additional to buy.
Both Macintosh and Windows users can manage Kindle files through the USB connection. When your Kindle is plugged into your computer, your Kindle will appear as a removable mass storage device. If your computer is Windows-based, you need to be using Windows 2000 or later. If your computer is a Macintosh, you should be using Mac OS X 10.2 or later. With either computer, you must have an available USB port or an attached USB hub with an available port.
MAKING THE CONNECTION
To connect Kindle to your computer, follow these steps:
1. Plug the larger end of the USB cable into an available USB port or a powered USB hub connected to your computer.
2. Connect the other end of the USB cable to the micro-USB port on the bottom of your Kindle.
When you are connected to your PC, your Kindle will go into USB drive mode and its battery will be recharged by the computer.
Your Whispernet service is temporarily shut off and you will not receive any of your subscriptions while in this mode. Also, your Kindle is not usable as a reading device while you are in USB drive mode, but will return right to where you were when you unmount the device from your computer.
8.2 Handling Files through USB
MANAGING YOUR DOCUMENTS
When your Kindle is connected to a computer and mounted as a USB drive, you will see three default directories or folders. The one called “documents” contains all of your digital reading materials like books, newspapers, your My Clippings file, etc. You can add Kindle-compatible files to these directories, and you can copy, move, or delete the files that are already there.
