Yesterday Apple sent its newest version of iTunes through the software update pipeline. It’s iTunes 9.1, and it’s iPad ready. If you’re looking for more iPad crack to keep you going till iPadurday, you can now drag and drop EPub eBooks into iTunes!

iTunes only accepts EPub, and once you’ve got your eBook in your library, all that happens is iTunes creates a “Books” category in the upper left, and you can’t open your eBooks or do anything with them at all. But you can put them in there!

So start building your iBooks library now while you’re twiddling your thumbs, waiting for the UPS guy.
