How to Download eBooks on Amazon and iTunes
Q I downloaded a free book from iTunes just for fun, but I can't seem to open it on my computer. Is there a way to read it on my PC? A Apple designed your iTunes electronic book to be readable only on its iBooks software, which so far is available only for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. But there is free software that will unlock your iTunes book so you can read it on your PC. Note: There's nothing illegal here.
You can use Apple products -- including the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch -- to do just about anything, including read books. These products accept books from multiple sources as long you save the books in the ePub digital format. Click "Books" under "Library" from the left-hand side of iTunes. If you do not see "Books," find it by clicking "Preferences" from the main toolbar if you are on a Mac, or "Edit" and "Preferences" if you are on a PC. Under "Sources," check the box next to "Books" and click "OK" to finish.
