    My PC won't connect to my iPad for some reasons and I need to upload my ebooks to the iPad. Both for iBooks and Kindle.

    I've tried to go the Dropbox way but it seems to me that I will have to upload one file at a time. I can't get it to upload a whole folder at once. Very frustrating.

    What have you guys/girls been using when you can't connect to your computer? :confused:

    I use Google Drive, and when all else fails, I email them to myself.

    I use both Dropbox and email. Don't know why you need to upload a whole folder; you can only read one at a time.

    I have 250 books. I don't wanna upload 250 times for crying out loud.


    Can you upload the contents of a folder in a single upload with Google Drive?

    Go to Amazon, Your account, manage my kindle then find out the email address for your iPad Kindle app (email can also be found inside the Kindle app, this is NOT your sign-in/Amazon account email).

    Email the books to that email addy in one, they should sync into the app!

    In the middle of several books.
    Dropbox or email, since you can't use the computer to do it.

    You can upload the folder to DropBox (would barely take any time as epubs are very small generally) and then download and open each one in iBooks. The easiest would be to use something like Marvin where you can just batch download all from DropBox.
