    iBooks can the be transfered to Kindle Fire

    I have books on my iPhone that I would like to read on my KF, is there a way to accomplish this? I know Amazon has an app for the Iphone to read Kindle books and it works great, but just wondering if the other route is available.

    I am unclear with what you mean by "other route."

    Short answer - no, if they have been purchased from the iBookstore.

    If they are books purchased from Amazon, all your books will appear in your Archives on each device that is registered to your Amazon account.


    In order to be able to transfer/read other ebooks on your Kindle Fire they must:

    1. Be DRM-free

    2. Be in .mobi, .prc, or .azw to read in the Kindle app, or ePub can be read in third-party apps such as Mantano, nook, Aldiko.

    DRM-free books can be quickly converted from one format to another with Calibre (desktop shareware).

    Unfortunately, the Apple control freaks decided to develop their own version of DRM for their books
    and there are not yet (as far as I know) "tools" to liberate them. It's far easier to purchase and use from Amazon and B&N.

    Thank you Skydog.

    It's a shame that Apple locks their stuff down, I just thought there was a way to do this since I purchased the books.

    Yes, it is a shame, particularly in light of what happened with the music industry and where we are now -- DRM-free mp3s for sale at a reasonable price. What a concept.

    Not only did Steve Jobs lock down everything he touched, he is responsible for the high ebook prices today. He and the "Price Fix Six" publishers, with the goal of "neutralizing" Amazon, cooked up a deal where publishers are now dictating the prices and retailers are not allowed to discount. The end of competetion finished off some smaller, independent ebook sellers. So what were once the "no more than $9.99" bestsellers at Amazon, B&N and other retailers are now priced at or near a hardback but without the ability to loan it out, give it away or sell it. The only thing this has done is tick off the consumer and increased piracy. Until they pull their collective heads out of the sand, we will be restricted from using our devices as we like.

    As a matter of fact, a news article today reported that the EU is commencing litigation against Apple for the price-fixing of ebooks. I also read some months ago that several U.S. Attorneys General were gathering data to do the same. Who knows if anything will result from it -- I'm not holding my breath.

    Swimming against the tide here and I understand why folks find it frustrating that they cannot purchase a single copy of a book and read it (natively) with any device, but the Apple bashing seems a bit hypocritical since virtually every firm tries to limit the use of content to the devices they sell. Furthermore, though the analogy is not exact, consider this hypothetical.

    You walk into a local bookstore and buy a book. (Yes, these stores and products still exist.) Then you walk down the street to another store and ask the bookseller to give you another copy free of charge, arguing that since you've already purchased the book the store should give you another copy.
