    Hi,

    I have a few pdf files that I would really like to be able to use in the books.app

    I have the pdf viewer but I don't really like it, and would like to convert the pdfs to be able to view them in books.app instead.

    Save it as text in Adobe Acrobat. Open that in Word, save as htm file. You should split the book up into seperate files though, loads more quickly on your touch that way (ie I split Cujo by Stephen King into four different htm files, all right around 50 pages long. Part I, Part II, etc). Easy way is to do it by chapter(s).

    Book app supports more format. I prefer to UTF-8 coded pure text file.
    It also supports pdb ebook.
