    You cannot.  They're in a different format (epub) than the Kindle can read, and they are additionally protected by DRM that is not compatible with any other devices.  Sorry.  :(

    The iBooks you bought from Apple won't transfer to your Kindle or Kindle app on any iDevice. 

    Any Amazon e-book you bought through a Kindle app on an iDevice will be in the Amazon archives in your Kindle account on Amazon's web site.

    You can access your kindle books on I pad with the Kindle app however.. but this does not go both ways
