Obtaining books readable in iBooks
I'm still having a problem understanding how to obtain books that I can read in my iPads book reader... titles I can find from other sources when they are not available from the Apple Book Store.
I have downloaded and installed Calibre on my Windows laptop, but have no idea how to use it or what to use it on. Or perhaps I should rephrase that last to read that I don't know how to obtain an electronic book copy that I can run through Calibre for converstion to a file that will read in iBooks reader.
I have visited several stores and find books I want, but they seem to have to be downloaded into other propriatary app/readers... such as Amazon's Kindle or their Kindle App.
In another thread, I mentioned that I had purchased a book from eBooks.com, and that I was stuck fetching that book into their own reader. I couldn't do anything but open that eBooks reader to see the book. There has to be more to this than ONLY being able to view and read books in the iPad's reader that are obtained from the Apple book store.
Can I please have some coaching on how this all works. I know that Calibre can transform lots of file types, but I need to know how to obtain the files that can be run through Calibre.
Hope my inquiry is clear enough. Thanks.
