Synchronize Books from Your Computer to Your iPad

By Edward C. Baig, Bob LeVitus

If you’ve downloaded books to your Mac or PC, you can download them to your iPad by syncing. If you chose to let iTunes manage synchronizing your data automatically, you can still manage your automatic syncing options. Make sure that your iPad is selected in the source list.

To sync e-books and audiobooks, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Books button and select the Sync Books check box to enable book syncing.

    Two pop-up menus at the top of the Books section may make it easier to manage your book collection. The first pop-up lets you see Only Books, Only PDF Files, or both. The second lets you sort your books by either Title or Author.

  2. Choose All Books or Selected Books by clicking the appropriate radio button.

  3. If you chose Selected Books, select the check boxes of the books you want to sync.

  4. Scroll down the page a little and select the Sync Audiobooks check box to enable audiobook syncing.

  5. Choose All Audiobooks or Selected Audiobooks.

  6. If you chose Selected Audiobooks, select the check boxes of the audiobooks you want to sync.

    If the book is divided into parts, you can select check boxes for the individual parts if you want.

  7. Click the Sync or Apply button in the lower-right corner of the window.

    Your books and audiobooks are synced to your iPad.
