Getting a kindle...transferring books

I've got an iphone 4 which comes with an app called ibooks and I also downloaded kindle for iphone. Both have books I have purchased. Is there any way I can transfer the books from both apps to my phone to a kindle?

Many thanks!

The books you bought using the Kindle App will be in your Kindle account - you can simply re-download them onto your Kindle. The Kindle will display a home page item called "Archive" which contains everything that you've bought but not downloaded to that device. Just open the archive, and select the books you want to download to your new Kindle.

I'm afraid that books bought in the iBookStore can't be transferred elsewhere. Best to avoid that store - it "locks you in" to iBooks. Sorry!

That is why I like Amazon. You may also download your books from Amazon to several different devices. And they all stay in sync as to where you are in the book.
