Has anyone had success pushing books to iPads? I have created a fileset with the book attached but cannot seem to get it on the device. I tried using our VPP and the built in appstore browser to make filesets and neither will show up. I looked in the iBooks app and I have nothing listed. I cannot seem to find any information other than Filewave supports this feature.

This should be available in the next release of FileWave.
When FileWave 9.0 has been released, iOS had a bug that would prevent this feature from working correctly so we could not have it in our product.
In the meantime Apple fixed the issue, but we haven't released a version of FileWave containing it - stay tuned !

Books/Media will be handled the same way as apps, i.e. you can install and remove them from iBooks via FileWave.
Please note that it will work only if you have VPP license for the book fileset, as the InstallMedia command relies on VPP on Apple side.

In current FileWave versions, books are available via kiosk/app portal only- when the end user installs the books, it opens itunes that will "install" the book on the device.
