It would be a useful feature to add to iTunes on a PC or Mac.

That wouldn't work, unless you've figured out a way to break Apple's DRM for the iBooks. Apple uses their own DRM, not ADEPT.

Sorry didn't realize that he was talking about apple drm ebooks, as i never buy from ibook store. I prefer to buy from amazon and make it drm free so that i can read it on any device any format.

Are there instructions somewhere on how to remove the Amazon DRM from an azw file and convert it to epub?
Thanks.

Yes, you can read your books via Calibre's viewer. However your e-reader needs to be connected to your computer so Calibre can "read" the books files. Calibre's viewer allows you to adjust font size and even has a bookmark feature but won't track last page read like Kindle's app will across platforms.

If you have books already on Calibre, you can read them anytime without tethering your device.

Of course, Calibre won't read DRM protected files as that is proprietary to the book seller and book publisher.

Yes, there are, but please don't ask for them here at MR. It is against forum policy to either ask for, or provide, detailed assistance with DRM removal.

A Google search for "Apprentice Alf" may lead to enlightenment.

I have been trying to buy that hard-to-find book “How to Break DRM for Dummies.” It is the one that comes with the accompanying CD containing programs, scripts, links and a list of reasonably priced defense attorneys.

too funny
and from what I have read, publishers are changing up DRM all the time so staying current would be challenging.

There is work being done on the fairplay DRM being used for iBooks ePub. But, it's not there yet. So for now, there is no way to remove the DRM. The solution is to not buy any book via iBooks.
