I tested Bluefire with both ePub and PDF library books from the Fairfax County (Virginia) Public Library. It worked great on my iPad, using the likewise-free Dropbox program as a way to transfer the books from the desktop machine with which I had downloaded them from the library.
I could also have used iTunes or email for the transfer.
Soon OverDrive will be out with its own e-book app, which will reduce the number of steps needed.
Here’s hoping that a well-stocked National Digital Library System can exist in time with oodles and oodles of library books for students and the rest of us!
