The dotepub (pronounced dot - epub) bookmarklet converts web pages to iBook format.
Dotepub -
  • Here's a tutorial video on how to make the bookmarklet. It was created in OS 6, but the process is the same.
  • What it does: This bookmarklet will turn almost any web page into an iBook format that you can open directly into iBooks.
  • Why? Once there you don't need an internet connection to read it. And, you can use the powerful notes features of iBooks to take and share notes about the page.
  • Try the bookmarklet here . And here .
Does this all work in a cart environment? What are the caveats? What are the solutions?
