    So...iBooks for mavericks took over my itunes ebook library, and now I can't manually sync individual ebooks to my iPad.

    Does anyone have a solution for how to copy individual ebooks over to an iPad without syncing the entire lot? Is it possible to go back to how iTunes under ML used to work? I've searched and googled but not found a fix for this...

    Never mind the fact that ibooks on mavericks took all the books and moved them and converted them to some odd file format.

    Ta, AJ

    1.) Kill the bookstoreagent service using the Activity Monitor.

    2.) Delete the file for that service: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CommerceKit.framework/Versions/A/Resources/bookstoreagent

    3.) Use AppCleaner to get rid of iBooks.

    4.) Restart iTunes and you will find the Books tag return under library.

    5.) Import your books again with all the metadata intact.

    iTunes will return to pre-Mavericks books management!

    Once the books have been moved to iBooks and if you have the latest version of iTunes you can sync books as normal through iTunes under your device tab.
