Unfortunately, there is no way to read a book you purchased in the iTunes store on a computer. Apple has not released a desk top version of their e-reader app, iBooks. And, most, if not all of their books have Digital Rights Management (DRM) coding on them, so they can only be read by Apple devices. So, the only place you can read an iBook is on an iDevice. Sorry.

Does anybody know any website to get free or less expensive (than 13.99) ebooks, besides those free books like Dracula, Alice in wonderland, Federalist paper, etc, ?
i used to buy used books for a couple $, now reading became so expensive.
Was wondering if anybody reads any more or spends a fortune?

You should also check out your local public library. With membership, you can borrow books from the library and read it on your iPad. My library uses the Overdrive app.

Look for free kindle books and free nook books.

Just google either and explore the suggested sites.

Another good site for freeebooks in various formats is
www.free-ebooks.net

I get 5 books a month for free (now and again doubled to 10), or you can pay a monthly or annual fee and get unlimited downloads
