      You can read eBooks bought through iBook. You just can't through iTunes. You can just open the eBook through a eReader.

      I should have written more clearly. Hindsight 20x20, sorry.Double clicking in finder on ePub file will launch Calibre, if you have it to read the ePub file. Double clicking in iTunes does nothing.
