And copy them 3 times if there is 3 apps you might need...It's absurd.
On the go, you might need to switch app because ibook doesn'do much execpt open and read...I would like to be able to open an app and go take the book I need from the ibook file, on the mini. That would be logical. That's what you do on a Android tablet as a matter of fact.
All iPads are the same in this regard. There is an eBook share app that can be used to copy files for more than one app but each app has its own copy. Android (at least version 2.X) is that way also. I had to root mine in order to get at the locations to copy files but they don't share much better than Apple does. I think some Android apps may be designed to use each others folders perhaps but I am not aware of which ones.
