How to Transfer EPUB Files to iPad

I am not a bookworm, but sometimes I like reading some best-sellers to kill time. Recently, I found a book called Steve Jobs written by Walter Isaacson, it should be the kind of books I like, so I checked the format, fortunately it was in EPUB format, and I could download it to my iPad. I put it on my computer, opened iTunes and wanted to synchronize it with my iPad, but I found that if I sync this book, other apps or photos I had would be removed, so I stopped the synchronization and tried to drag and drop the file directly onto my iPad, it didn’t work of course, I became a little disappointed, were there any other ways to transfer  EPUB files to iPad without iTunes synchronization?

I searched for answers on the Internet, I found that many people came up with the same problems as I did, and most of them used some software to solve the problem. So I tried to find software which was easy to use and could transfer EPUB to iPad quickly. Finally, I found the Leawo iTransfer, and used it to help me to transfer the files in EPUB format between my iPad and PC. Next, I’d like to share the using steps with you and you won’t be worry about transferring the files in EPUB format in the future.
