    For 1.1.3 and older Books.app, the folder for ebook should be /var/root/Media/EBooks.
    New Books.app can find ebook in /var/mobile/Media/EBooks folder.

    wow, just solved this prob!

    FIX -

    Update books app, exit and respring
    Go into books, if you get a pin wheel and can look around the file system good
    Using WinXCP or whatever you usually go into the ebooks folder (I believe for me it was under /private/root/var/root/media/Ebooks and change the file permissions to 0775

    In WinSCP you right click the folder (you'll need to do it to the ebooks folder AND each of the ebook folders) and go into properities. At the bottom it should say 0000, change it to 0775 and navagate (on the ipod) out of the ebooks frolder than back in, you should see the folders and be able to use the contents.

    Enjoy your ebooks!
