    Get the Kindle app from the iTunes store and link your Amazon account and import the books- the Kindle app works great on the iPad and iPhone . I can be reading a book on the iPad and then read it on the iphone-it syncs to the last page i was reading on any device .Not sure about your ebooks and pdf's though.

    You won't be able to convert ebooks and PDFs that have DRM.

    Do a little goggling (?) google ing on ePub converters, or whatever format your using. There are some programs that will make a conversion for you, butnyou may run into the copy rite issue(s) with DRM.

    E-calibre is excellent and free. You can convert to many different formats And it already has different set ups optimized for different devices. Obviously iPad is there and Kindle. But there are many others

    As was already said, if they were purchased through Amazon, as well as many other retailers, they are DRM protected, so you won't be able to convert them and use them in iBooks.

    Get kindle app for ios devcies. Most of Kindle ebooks are drm protected, and there is no legal way to get rid of drm protection.
