How to Add Ebooks to iPhones

True to the marketing slogan for iPhones, you can easily install an eBook reader on your mobile device to read books and other literature on the go. There are a bevy of eBook readers available to the iPhone, including a few that connect directly with other eBook readers like the Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook. Once you have set up your eBook app, adding eBooks to your iPhone is a simple matter of following the application instructions. In most cases, all you will need to do is connect your iPhone and drag and drop the eBook files. Some apps even allow you to browse eBook repositories and add files through that method.
