    I've tried Googling and MRoogling this one but still can't seem to find a clear answer, so here goes...

    Should PDF documents which I have in iBooks be syncing between my devices via iCloud - i.e. in the same way that books from the iBookstore do?

    If so, how do I enable this? If not, any suggestions on how to achieve this so I can sync the stored PDFs on my iPhone and iPad?

    Thanks in advance...

    No, one of my major complaints. Neither PDF's nor personally added epub's from third party sources sync.

    I don't even think they get backed up. I have on a few times in the past restored and lost all docs. Very annoying, it's hard to manage/keep a reliable library on iPad.

    I make sure all are stored in Dropbox for backup. That's my recommendation. Use DropBox, and star those that you know you'll need often then it'll keep a local cache of that file.
