How to share books and PDFs directly from iBooks for iPhone and IPad

If you find a book you think a friend might like, iBooks gives you an easy way to share a link directly to that book for them to check it out and purchase it if they choose. Alternately, if you use iBooks to save PDFs, you can also email them directly to someone in just a few taps.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong but when I try to share a PDF, after I hit the Share button, Print, is the only option given.

@Paulthefencer As usual with email, it depends on the size.
