    iBooks, keep local copy?

    I have a few books I read in iBooks. I typically have them in Google Drive then do “open in” and choose iBooks. The challenge is that iBooks insists on storing the books in iCloud, and only temporarily on the iPad itself. So if I leave iBooks for a bit and do other stuff, iOS will clean up...

I have been an Apple user since 1984 and when I discover (yet another) change that destroys the integrity of well-planned architecture, it makes me a wee bit crazier. I have an ePub file.
