OS X: How to get the books out of iBooks

iBooks-Icon-128pxOne of the first questions I had when evaluating iBooks, was “How do I get my PDFs back from iBooks, if needed?”. The answer is pretty simple, and very Apple like: “You just drag them from iBooks to your folder of choice”.

So normally you should not bother where iBooks stores the books.

For the curious one, the full path is:

~/Library/Containers/com.apple.BKAgentService/Data/Documents/iBooks/Books

If you do not see the

~/Library

folder (by default it is a hidden folder),  use the Finder > Go to Folder and paste the above.
