Getting ePub books onto iPad (free books!)

@bbum pointed out some great free eBooks in his recent blog post.  They are at — Thanks Bill!

I just wanted to pass on a tip – when I downloaded a couple of books and then tried to drag these to my iPad in the left source pane, iTunes crashed, every time.  Here’s what worked:

1) download books to the Desktop

2) Drag .epub files into the “Library” in iTunes

3) select the “Books” entry under the “Library” group in iTunes; the books are listed in the right pane.

4) Drag the books from there onto the “iPad” entry in the “Devices” group.
