For an iBooks lover, it’s really a good joy to read iBooks on iPad, isn’t it? But, when on a tour, at the office room, on a bus, and so on, don’t you think reading books holding a heavy iPad is too tired?
Often at this time, I prefer to Kindle eReader rather than an iPad, for Kindle is more lightweight, more friendly to eyes.
So here comes our need: transfer books from iPad to Kindle. I will share the easy way for you to resolve it step by step, including the reason for this.
2 Problems we must face before transferring from iPad to Kindle
Problem 1: Books in iBooks are not allowed to transfer.
Most of our purchased books from iBooks bookstore are forbidden to copy, transfer, and share. Apple put their own DRM (copy protection) on those books. So we cannot move books from iPad to kindle.
Problem 2: Books in iBooks are epub or pdf, not kindle format.
All the books we bought from iBooks are epub format or pdf format, while Kindle devices only support Kindle’s own format, such as mobi, azw3, azw, azw4, prc. So even though we can copy our books from iPad to kindle, we still can’t read them on kindle, because we can’t find a right reading app to open them.
We have found the problems, so if we could resolve the problems, we can reach our goal, yes? Let’s come to the “how to” part you may be most interested in.
