Since upgrading my iPad all the books are gone from my library yet when I go to iTunes it shows the books I purchased. Am I going to have to download them again?

In iTunes, disable syncing of books, do a sync, and then re-enable. Maybe it is a bit confused? – Zoredache Oct 15 '11 at 0:24

I think this can happen if you're a bit premature unplugging your iPad from iTunes. Try plugging it in and resyncing.

Assuming you didn't have any backup app like pkgbackup, you can still reload them from iTunes if you bought them.
