    Hi guys,

    First of all, most (not all) of the ePub files I have in iTunes are not from the iBookstore. They are simply an array of documents i've converted, using Calibre, into ePub format and threw them in iTunes. Aside from Calibre, i've also been using Pages to convert my documents to ePub format.

    I thought at least Pages would be able to accept ePub files so I can read them on my Mac but that doesn't seem to be the case.

    I'm wondering if I can set any sort of default program to open when I click on an ePub files within iTunes?

    I've download Stanza and it seems like a decent ePub reader, but ePub files I click within iTunes don't open to Stanza; they simply don't open. How can I set it as a default so any ePub file I tap within iTunes opens with Stanza on my Mac?

    I've gone ahead and kept Stanza, though it seems I must drag the ePub file out of iTunes first and then into Stanza.

    Works for me now I guess.

    Hoping for a better solution in the long run.
    :D
