How to download a book on the iPad?
People who bought Apple's mobile equipment often have a question: how to download a book on an iPad? Indeed, this tablet is very convenient not only for surfing the Internet or watching videos, but also for reading books. But, the iPad works with its own e-book format - epub, so the question of searching and downloading books remains relevant.
Download books using a PC
There are several options for working with e-books. The first is the purchase of books through the built-in iBooks application. But for this you need to be registered in the AppStore, and most of the books are in English, which is not very convenient.
Fortunately, you can also upload books to iBooks via iTunes, which allows you to add books in any language. To do this, save on the computer the book of interest to us in the epub format (or convert it from any other format); We launch and connect the iPad to the computer. In the left iTunes menu should display a special item - "Books". But if it is not there, then it’s not scary, dragging a book from your computer to iTunes - and it will appear! And if it already was, then a book will appear in the section (or several books - it depends on how many books we want to download).Then go to the section corresponding to our device and on the "Books" tab, select the checkbox "Sync books." In the synchronization settings, you can select the following items: synchronize only books, synchronize only PDF files, or synchronize both. After synchronization, books will be displayed in your tablet's iBooks. Everything, it is possible to start reading!
Download directly to iBooks
Often there is a need to download a book from the Internet, bypassing the computer. This is also possible! We go to any site that contains direct links to books in the epub format. Examples of such sites:; ; lib.ru; flibusta.net. We find on the website the book we need (as a rule, you can use the search by author or book title) and choose the format (if there are several of them, of course). After that, click the "Download" button and wait until the book is downloaded. After the download is complete, a dialog box opens in which we click the "Open in iBooks" button. Enjoy your reading!
Third-party software for reading
If you for some reason do not like the built-in program for reading iBooks, then you can use a variety of alternatives. Among them are both paid and free.For example, Stanza, Good Reader, Shortbook - the list is far from complete! As a rule, third-party applications do not support iTunes, but you can add books to them using the "Shared Files" option. Most programs support and download books on their own.
The above information is not only suitable for the iPad, but will also be useful for iPhone users - Apple devices do not contain a fundamental difference in working with books. We hope that now you know how to download a book on the iPad and will be able to put this knowledge into practice!
