How to Use iBooks on Your Mac

Learn how to use iBooks on your Mac in this Mac tutorial from Howcast.


Hi, Lisa here, and I'm going to show you iBooks on the Mac. So you'll find iBooks in your dock. When you click on it, the first time it will open up to a Get Started page. So you can click on that, and then it's going to take you to your library. Now right now I don't have anything in my library, so nothing's showing up. But you can go to the iBooks store with the button on the top left to see what books are for sale. So on here you'll find the Featured Books, the Top Charts, New York Time Bestsellers, Categories, and also Top Authors.

So you can scroll through. You can find pretty much anything you want to find here, along with different popular collections. Now once you purchase something, it will go into your library which you can access again on the top left. Once you have it in your library, you can view by all of your books, collections, authors, categories, or in a list. Now once you've downloaded it into iBooks, you can actually read it on your computer as well. So let's take a look at downloading a sample. So underneath the picture of any book, you'll see the option to get a sample. So right now that's downloading into my library. Once it's there, you can double-click it to open it, and it will open up for you to read. You can proceed forward by pressing the forward arrow, or you can click on the button on the right hand side of the screen. And there you go. That's how you can use iBooks on your Mac.
