    Has anyone been able to use iBooks outside the US with a US iTunes account (or even an non US account)?

    Can Americans who travel outside the US download books on wifi when outside the country?

    Do you also need a US iTunes account? How do you even get the iBooks app if you're outside US?

    Yes, you need a US account, otherwise you wont be able to access the US Store. Create a new itunes account and redeem that account with a US gift-card. You don't need a credit card to have an iTunes account. And to answer the original question, Americans can travel outside of the US and still use their US account, because no matter where in the world they are, if they need to log onto itunes store.. itunes will prompt them to the US store, as that is where their account is registered
