How to put a book on an iPad in OSX 10.9 (Mavericks)?

How to put a book on an iPad would normally be a no-brainer, just drag and drop.
But Mavericks seems to be a special beast.

Thanks much for your useful input.
OS X 10.9 works nicely, but the new iBooks is a return to the Middle Ages.

iBooks is useful only for books purchased in the ibookstore. For anything else, use Marvin. You'll be happier.

My two favorite ways:
  • email the book to yourself, then open it in e-reader of your choice (I recommend Marvin)
  • load the book into your cloud software (Dropbox, SugarSync, Copy.com...), then open it on your iPad
No need to mess around with Mac OS! And especially not with iTunes or iBooks. No need to establish a direct connection between your computer and the iPad to smoothly transfer books to your iPad.

So how do I get a book that my Mac's iBook app can read into Calibre so I can get it to Marvin?

No need to mess around with Mac OS! And especially not with iTunes or iBooks. No need to establish a direct connection between your computer and the iPad to smoothly transfer books to your iPad.
We need active internet connection in that case, though, and fast upload for bigger files.

Direct connection between PC/Mac and the iPad (for file transfer) can also easily be established wirelessly over local wi-fi in a couple of seconds by opening any book reader or iOS app that allows wireless transfer (many of them free like Foxit reader, CHM+ Lite,CHM+Free ...), no need for active internet connection, for cable connection or for iTunes and its surrogates .

Just one click on wireless icon in Foxit reader, then typing of the showed adress e.g. 192.168.5.103:8080 into web browser on computer and then using opened graphic interface to upload the book at our wireless router speed e.g. 2-3 MB/s.

Next time there is no even need to enter the whole adress but just to select it in our web browser after first couple of numerals are typed in e.g. 192.

Once book is in that particular app e.g. Foxit reader, we can open it in any other app (that supports this kind of file e.g. iBooks) by using open-in function.

By using CHM+ Lite, CHM+Free, Foxit etc. we can transfer any kind of file (not just books) as single file or as zipped/rared collections and then unzip/unrar them in CHM+ or any other app that can uncompress files.

e.g. to transfer 100 MB of books, songs and video clips, we just rar them quickly together without compression and transfer them rared in less than a minute to iPad (10 sec. for establishing connection + 50 sec. for upload, if on slow or busy router).

Using cables or internet shall take more time.


Haven't tried it yet, but there is Instashare app for Mac that (beside local wi-fi) can also use bluetooth.
http://instashareapp.com

We can also use some external wi-fi enclosure(HDD) and its own wi-fi network and iOS app.

I can share files between my iPad1 and iPad4 (Airdrop is not compatible with iPad 1) using only free iOS apps that allow transfer over bluetooth or over bluetooth combined with their own wi-fi capability(for greater speed once bluetooth connection is established), but without the need for local wi-fi network whatsoever, so I guess there could be some app that allows that for MAC/PC also.
