    From reading this section am I right in thinking that PDF's cant be stored in iCloud?

    Ive purchased an ebook that ive saved onto my MacBook. I'd like to be able to view this ebook on my iPhone5 as well as my MacBook.

    Can it be stored on iCloud, or will I just have to email it to myself, and read the email on my iPhone?

    Thanks:)

    I'm not too sure about the first part of your question, but emailing might be pain; as one of iOS' biggest flaw, you cannot save documents/music/video out-of-the-box. You can email yourself that document and view it. However, if you switch to do another task and your iPhone's RAM dumps the PDF, you're going to have to re-download it again and again.

    I suggest getting a Dropbox account; it will sync files on your Mac and iPhone (PDFs, Music, Videos, Word files etc). You can save a PDF on your Mac to your Dropbox folder and it will appear on your iPhone (and you can save it to view later).

    iBooks can read PDFs so you could use iTunes to sync the PDFs in question to the iPhone.
