You can go back to your 'Purchased' section from the iTunes Store and re-download the book again so it'll be in iTunes. It won't charge you again.

In iTunes? The OP can't find the book in iTunes.

Yes, but I highly recommend keeping your all of your library on one machine. It will make it much easier to browse and keep organized.

I'm actually converting all my iTune files from my old computer to my Mac. The reason I asked about the book is because it wasn't in my iTunes on my old computer so I didn't wanna lose something that I paid for, you know.

Gotcha. While everything is available via your 'Purchased' section, it's always better to keep a local copy in the event your app/book/media gets removed from the store.
