One of the first problems you’d see is that Mavericks’s iBooks app does not show you all the books in your original collection. If the books are downloaded/purchased via the bookstore, it shows up fine but if not, there’s a really good chance that those won’t show up.

To fix this, you have to do just one thing. Move them from iTunes. Here’s how:

Step #1. Open the iBooks app on your Mac

Step #2. Click on File (menu)

Step #3. Click Move Books from iTunes…

Step #4. Wait for all books to be transferred. In the case of a large collection of books, it might take a while before all your books show up on the iBooks library.

Users note that when you move books from iTunes, it creates a separate library.
