OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) + iBooks
As noted in the Calibre + Apple iDevices: Start here sticky and the iOS reader applications plugin sticky, calibre is no longer able to communicate with iTunes or iBooks under OS X 10.9.
The problem is that Apple completely changed the way that ebooks are managed in Mavericks. Under previous versions of OS X, it was possible for calibre to use app automation to communicate with iTunes using Applescript. The new iBooks for OSX application doesn't support Applescript.
As a result, as of calibre 1.8, the 'Connect to iTunes' menu option has been removed when running under Mavericks. The next release of the iOS reader applications plugin will remove iBooks as a supported reader application when running under Mavericks.
There is no estimate at this time as to if or when USB support for iBooks might return to calibre. There is an existing ticket in calibre's bug tracker.
In the meantime, here are the options I'm aware of:

Effectively, this has meant that Calibre was working perfectly fine with iTunes, even though I am running Mavericks...
Is there any chance that the Send to iTunes functionality could be added back?
It seems a shame that it is now Calibre that is stopping me from adding my ebooks, rather than Apple...
