    I believe airsharing will let you do that.

    Also look in to Good Reader.

    Goodreader with dropbox to sync has been working well for me.

    Just get Goodreader and you will see how easy it is. It's only 99 cents. No need for drop box.

    dropbox is just online storage. 2 gb for free. you can also use use goodreader via wifi to transfer files as well. dropbox lets you drag files into a folder on your pc or mac and it will sync them to their server. Goodreader will connect natively to dropbox and other storage sites.

    You can also add files directly in iTunes. Works great.

    Goodreader is very nice. You just drag and drop your PDF files in iTunes.
