Manually add .PDF's to iBooks

I've got some .pdf notes from class that I want to add to iBooks. I have iFile, but I can't find the right folder to put the files in. Does anyone know where they go? Or is there an obvious solution I'm missing?

I've got an iPhone 4 with 4.0 on it, jailbroken.

It's in /var/mobile/media/books if you're still looking. I usually download the pdf file through safari download manager and then save it to that link. Then using iFile to unzip and open the files to iBooks. No need to go through iTunes.

Try opening the pdf in iFile, then it'll give you an option to open to iBooks.

in your computer: Drag and drop the PDF into iTunes (inside your iPhone tab)
in your iPhone: Open the pdf and when it finishes loading, just press on the top right the button that says 'Open in iBooks" and it will copy it directly to the iBooks folder
