There are a million ways to load ebooks onto your iPad. A few that come to mind:
- Copy the ePub ebook into Dropbox or Box.net cloud storage, then open it on your iPad with Stanza.
- Connect your iPad to a Linux machine and then copy the ePub files into the Documents drive of the iPad. You'll need to put the ePubs into the Stanza documents directory.

- Load the ePub using iTunes via iBooks.
- And, if you've been following the WebDav conversation, setup your own OwnCloud on your home/work computer, then access books from there (simply setup the OwnCloud URL to files (http://ipaddress/owncloud/files/index.php), login, and then you have access to all your books you've put in the OwnCloud. With this, you can select books individually then save them to your Stanza library!)
