I was under the impression that you could read iTune ePubs with your softwar. I downloaded for review like you say and tried it with my iPad. The process does not work on my Dell PC running Windows 7. Is your software suppose to remove the DRM? You give the impression it does. I would purchase but I can not get it to work so I can read my books on my PC or my laptop.

Want to use iBooks but am unsure due to this question? Please help.

Thank you Jessica for this great option. I’ll give it a try. – Thanks Elizabeth for asking this question.
For Rodney: if you want to buy iBooks, you can buy them through the Apple website or an Apple iPhone or iPad and read them on your apple product only. You will not be able to easily read them on a PC (windows operating system) without some type of software program assistance, as this article provides. If you do not have an iPhone or iPad to begin with, then you likely have a PC. So you will be using other eBooks sellers to view on a PC.
