    I am trying to convert my PDF eBook into a format that will be readable by the iBooks App (ePub). I have goodreader but i love the interface of the iBooks app and would like to read using it. I tried to convert using epub2go.com, but whenever I try to add the new epub to iTunes it crashes!! What am I doing wrong?? I am using a MacBook in case it matters.

    PDF to pub conversion is a hassle and for anything but text only conversion you will more then likely not be happy with the results. If your not satisfied with the results of goodreader try one of the other PDF apps.

    Count yourself lucky, with the nook and kindle your stuck with subpar PDF support and horrible epub conversions.

    Yes, I would only use Calibre for text-only PDF files. It's always done the job for me.

    But for magazines and other image heavy PDFs, just use GoodReader.
