Can i transfer my epub books from a sony to an ipad?

Is this possible?
I have a sony 650 and am considering getting an ipad in the future, I'd love to be able to read my books on the ipad, i know the epub format is supported on the ipad, but is it possible to transfer the books to the ipad?

Bluefire is probably the best app that can read Adobe ePubs, but, as SHOECHICK said, there are now several others with more coming.

I did it using the iBooks app when I had an iPad this summer. It was quite easy. I used iTunes to transfer the EPUBs.

Could you let us know please how the books appeared? I understand that the iPad is not entirely compliant with the ePub standards.

I second the recommendation for the Bluefire app for DRM'ed EPUBs.

Another option for non-DRM'ed EPUBs is the Apple iBooks app. Here is an explanation from Apple on how to use iTunes to load EPUBs into iBooks.

Please do not call iBooks the iPad. iBooks is but an app. It is not the iPad. How eBooks look with iBooks is not the only way they will look on the iPad. There are other apps for reading eBooks for the iPad. And some are better then iBooks such as Bluefire Reader.

You can use Bluefire for DRM free ePub as well and never actually use iBooks.

Bluefire wasn't available (AFAIK) when I had my iPad.

The books looked fine from what I saw. I opened probably 50 different titles and paged through them.
