    Running the most publicly available of OS X and iOS and I was wondering if there was a way to transfer my iBooks to a kindle and how would I go about doing that?


    Thanks

    Nor can you transfer Kindle to iBooks or transfer any DRMed to any other DRMed since all are proprietary. So it is not a Apple limitation.

    There are ways to send kindle ebooks to Ibook but not the other way round.

    Nope, you need to find what ebooks platform that works best and stick with that.. You cannot send iBook formatted books over to your kindle.

    I use the Amazon Kindle app simply because it works well for me. I find it easier to have wish list/order via Amazon. However, if a book is not available on Amazon I do check iBooks.

    Apple has an excellent ecosystem for most everything one wants to do.

    Mainly because I have other platforms besides Apple, my choice is to use the excellent Kindle App, and eBook system. I buy the book once and it is readily accessible via my iDevices, Androids, and all my computers.

    Amazon hit a home run with Kindle.
