    I have a question about converted ePub books. How do they look in iBooks? I have a Barnes & Noble Nook e-reader and when I buy a book from the Barnes & Noble e-store, the books look great, nice margins on the side of the screen so its easier to read. But when I side load a book, it doesn't format it the same way. The text goes all the way to edge to edge of the screen. When you add your own eBook does it look as good as the ones you buy from the iBook store? Thanks.

    Umm, not sure what that means. Can you be more specific? Can you take a picture of your iPad with an ePub book on the screen. I don't understand what "looks like a regular ePub" means.

    Thank you. That looks a lot better than the way the Nook e-reader formats ePub. At least it has margins on both sides.

    A little off topic but does anyone know of any good sites to download some free ePub books? Thanks.
