How to Convert PDF to eBook for Easy Reading?

PDF is a very common format for distributing documents and ebooks, and by far the most common format you will find in the market. It's a great format to share documents; however, these PDF books often don't look very good on ebook readers such as the Kindle, Nook, and Sony Reader, and can take up valuable space on other devices such as a netbook or iPad.

EPUB stands for "electronic publication" and it’s the new standard for eBooks. It is the preferred format for reading on many ebookreaders, including the Barnes & Noble Nook, Android, and the Apple iOS iBooks platform that runs on iPhone and iPad.

Do you want to convert your PDF to an eBook for easy ebook reading? Use a PDF Converter for mac to get the PDF in eBook format.

For iPhone or iPad: It is fairly simple to add e-books (of the epub format) to your iPad or iPhone via your Mac, using iTunes file sharing. You’d simply drag and drop the book into iTunes, connect your iOS device, and sync the non-iBook file via the file sharing system in iTunes, just like any other file supported by apps on your iPad.

  1. Make sure the free iBooks app is on your iPad.
  2. Open iTunes on your computer.
  3. Find the ePub file on your computer.
  4. Drag and drop the ePub file onto your Library in iTunes on your computer.
  5. Connect your iPad to your computer.
  6. Check under the “Books” tab in iTunes to be sure this ePub is selected for syncing.
  7. Then sync. The ePub document is added to your iBooks collection inside the iBooks app.
  8. From now on, you can open the ePub document from the iBooks app on your iPad.

For Android: On Android, you'll have to download an epub reader such as Aldiko or Universal Book Reader to open epub files. We chose Universal Book Reader - here is what you need to do:

  1. Copy all epub files to your Android device.
  2. Open Universal Book Reader. The first time you start it, you will see some tips about the app's features. Keep hitting next till you see a bookshelf.
  3. The app will now ask you if you want to import all ebooks. Tap the Yes button and all the ebooks on your device will show up in the app automatically. Tap the one you want to open and you're good to go.
