    Unfortunately, no, there is no way to read iBooks in another app (unless they are DRM free). Usually, books are sold with Digital Rights Management (DRM) coding on them. This makes it so they can only be read by the reader that is made by the company that sells the e-book - in this case, Apple.

    Your other readers will not be able to decode that DRM on the iBook and thus will not be able to open it.

    If the e-book did not have the DRM coding, then it would only be an issue of the file type. However, it is very rarely you see ebooks being sold without that DRM. Sorry.
